Iknow.... but like 200, this could have potential lol

I will be amazed when multi card setups actually get X times the performence per additional card. Course it is not the video card's fualt, programming and programmers isn't/aren't there yet..

(In all games)

Gotta admit though, that is one nice looking heatsink

Puts the 3870x2's to shame

And it does have the quad dvi slots if you need that kind of thing.

But yeah, I agree, pretty unnecessary, kind of like Palit's 1gb 8500gt
