Default Re: Two GTX280 in SLI > Quad SLI with 9800GX2?

Yes, get the 280's I have two EVGA 280's FTW Edition in SLI and it's by far better. NVIDIA never got Quad SLI to work and this is their second try at such an Epic Failure. That also accounts for nvidia's 7950 GX2 in Quad SLI. Even ATI can do something right at least with their 4870 X2 cards in Crossfire. NVIDIA and Quad SLI never could meet the hype! 280's in SLI running at 2560x1600 will be bliss! Good luck!
