The games are just too damned demanding I tell ya

And throwing things like 3D Vision Surround into the mix will be a nightmare for anyone doing that... even 3x GTX 480's won't keep up for many games..

I'm starting to think that 2x GTX 480 won't be enough to keep up the 120fps required for normal 3D Vision on my Alienware AW2310 on many new games... I'm starting to think I should get three GTX 480's instead...

But my Antec 1200 case won't fit 'em Only has 7 slots and I need my sound card in there too

Are there any mobos which can do Tri-SLI and sound card on a 7-slot case? Seems possible (2+2+2+1)? I think it's the top slot which is the problem as most mobos don't have any PCIe slot for the top?
