I wouldn't pay too much attention to the people on here. A lot try to come off as experts, but if you notice they are mostly using outdated hardware and single card configurations. As for these CAPs I am loving them with SWTOR; definitely a nice performance boost. EDIT: Does your laptop have HT? I disabled that on my 2600k and noticed BF3 was a lot smoother. Although it still doesn't seem to be 100% fluid, maybe my next step is to get a 120hz monitor.
