Default Re: Worth it to go Tri-Sli?

Tri SLI is alot like Quad SLI. But a bit more difficult to manage from a thermal/power perspective. There can be alot of gains assuming your GPU limited. But your tempatures and room tempature will go up. If you are running 2 260s or 2 280s. It might be worth taking a look at. With 3 9800GTX cards you'll probably end up vram limited before you can make much use of it. Before going 3 Way SLI I strongly recommend you have some experience with normal SLI. 3 Way SLI much like Quad SLI is for those who are dedicated for the extra performance and are willing to jump through a few extra hoops for it. If you want a hassle free setup then don't bother.
