Bad thing is just the bank will be unhappy?

Looks like you've already foiled Prototype and he hasn't even started his build... lol (I saw his build log consisted of two GTX 285's vs your 3)

There won't be any difference in 3DMARK06 if he is going to 3 GTX 285. 3DMARK06 doesn't like more than 2 GPUs. This is my testing build so I know how to build a desktop and overclock. Veedubfreak said he won't upgrading soon after these.

I can't go with water yet because I don't have enough experience yet. Veedubfreak just needs to wait until Westmere comes out.

Veedubfreak and me will have fun next week.

Doesn't mean I can't compete against him or NosBoost or learn.

I dont even care about 3dmark anymore. But playing WoW with everything maxxed is actually taxing my 260s sli at 4k. Going tri 285 just for the fun of it.
