    Yeah man! :) Would be happy to do that.. Planning on it pretty soon here.

    gtx 480's vs radeon 5870's.. especially when it comes to the extreme benchmarks.. I'll do them all.. I really want TRI SLI Gtx 480's :)

    condensation seems to always be a problem.. I use dialectric grease and towels to keep all that away.. even during 24/7 phase cooling

    cool looks like u'll be doing phase and water cooling for those 480s cos they run pretty hot even on normal operation at stock speeds.

    I don't believe the reviewed Fermis will be the actual product... These chips were cherry picked and that's the reason for such high power consumption.

    The final product will have a little cut down.

    Hi guys need opinion about going decision regarding trifire or not.
    I can get a 5970 and give my 5870 with 240 euros.
    Or I can get another 5870 with 340 euros.
    Or stay as I am atm and buy another later at summer maybe when prices drop.
    Any suggestions?

    I just hopped onto triple HD 5870 Crossfire myself. Only running a baby OC at this time of 900|1250. Below is my first swipe at Vantage using the Extreme preset.

    Normal tessellation 4xAA @ 1920x1200

    Extreme tessellation with 4xAA|16xAF @ 1920x1200

    Just Cause 2 Demo @ 1920x1200 4xAA|16xAF with all on/enabled, set to high or very high as applicable.

    jeesus christ u already have 3 gpus in your setup. :nerd:


    isn't a 9800gt a bit of an over kill for a physx card unless it doesn't use an 8pin like a 9800gx2.

    I am using 2 gpus (2x 5870) plus the 9800gt for physx only.I dont believe its overkill while it is a single slot card and uses only one 6 pin.
    Bodar thanks for your suggestion , I will go for another 5870.

    Well I dont think that 9800gt will fit with 3x5870s...

    Yo Guys! Just ordered a 2gb 5870 with 6 monitor inputs. The 5870 eyefinity 6! :) I'll post some stuff on it here once I get the card. :)

    Bodar is the man!

    Bodar, When you get the 3x480s will you test them on eyefinity? I would like to know if multi-gpus run better than ATIs in eyefinity...

    Isn't Eyefinity ATI only? I don't think it will work on Nvidia cards.

    I think he means the Nvidia surround which is the same thing form nvidia but has to be sli to get 3 monitors.
