Four would be octo-fire... 2 of these cards would be quad fire because its 2 GPU's on one card.

I'll be buying a 3870x2 most likely but IDK if I'm getting this one... it will probly be pretty expensive.

Edit: did you guys see the article? "Nvidia fans are advised to look away due to safely reasons." LOL.

The design is pretty tight, itd be even better if it was sealed like the 8800t=gt, and i aslo agree on the ramsinks.
