SLI 285
 
I seen the benchies for 2 285's in some games but how does a 3rd 285 really add that much.

Its like the 3rd card adds another 20 frames to games so how is this possible?

The 2 did well in Warhead but the 3rd put it past the 295's bugtime so .

I always thought a 3rd card was pointless but wow. impressed.

On the newer games running a i7 920 with a X58 motherboard is where TRi SLI really shines.I run three BFG GTX 280 OCX with my i7 920 at 4.2gig with my Gigabyte EX-58 UD5 and in the newer games you really can see a difference ,at your highest resolutions ,I run my 24" dell at 1920x1200 ,plus you can run your FSAA and aniso on the highest settings in most games ,The Third card helps out because each card play a third of your monitor picture.But there is still a lot of games where three cards don't show much benifit.But three of them sure makes my Crysis game fly with all the highest detail on.

You get 50-60 fps with max AA and AF in Crysis on Very High?

Depends on how well the game scales with SLI. Some games don't see anything - some a few fps - which considering how much a third card costs is a waste imo. Also, depending on the CPU could hold you back and putting in a third GPU may not offer any performance increase. Its all relative.

What game is giving you 20 FPS more with a 3rd card?

2 285 GTXs are plenty for 2560x1600. It will be nice once the next gen is out, I can finally go back to single card ;)
