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.

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?
