Default GFX card fix????

Are 2 GTX 285's in SLi better than one GTX 295???

if eventually I will have enough money to buy 3 GFX Cards and hook them up in SLI on the Asus P6T board which one should I go with? the GTX 295 or the GTX 285?????

Ive heard that nividia's 3 way SLi works great but with the GTX 295 we are talking 6 processors!!!!! is that even legal

And for my temperory build I need to know of the most cheapest GFX card of all which supports PCI-e and DVI connection

They are more powerful, yes.

Doesn't work like that - Quad-SLI is the maximum - you can only use two 295s. In answer to which you should go with, 2x295s would be more powerful than 3x285s (AFAIK, I may be wrong) - but probably only once quad-sli improves and the 295 drivers improve.

Something like an ATI 3650, but I don't know if that would be any good value.
