    Does any one care about looks? For me it's about functionality.

    Skeptical about that cooling solution, this seems too pricey considering how late to the market it is.

    Global Warming ?

    What does Global Warming concerns have to do with the liquid cooler on a power-sucking graphics card?

    Perhaps you mean "local warming" as in the heat buildup inside the case?

    Crossfire:
    - Crossfire is inferior to SLI
    - 2xSLI/Crossfire is very prone to micro-stutter
    - 3xSLI/Crossfire has MINIMAL micro-stutter

    Therefore, the ideal high-end gaming rig is a 3x (GTX680 4GB) setup.

    Wouldn't it be AWESOME then, to see a solution like this Asus graphics card with THREE GPU's! Use a lower-end GPU solution due to the heat so you'll get the benefit of a high-end card without micro-stutter.

    Let's give it a name:

    "ARES3-12G3X670"

    (basically similar to a GTX690 with THREE GPU's instead of two, and 4GB per GPU instead of 2GB to game on a triple-monitor solution or just play FC3 on the highest quality.)
