well, the box claims 3 x vga on it for the psu and it comes with extra pci-e cables but the layout of the modular setup only shows 4 ports that I can see along the top where the pci-e cables that are attached are. On the bottom its 12v rails for sata and molex AFAIK. It doesn't matter either way, two of those would use up 1050 of 1500 watts. I know I would definitely have the power room if I could figure out the psu, it's just the tri slot cooling, I use the rest of my mb slots for other stuff, so again if someone was able to develop the gtx 295 (mind you, it used two gtx 260's or 275's put together, so I would guess to get a two slot with less power would either be two 470's or 465's) at two slots, why can't someone do it with dx 11 tech? I mean 4 470's in quad sli still beat two gtx 480's if that is what is needed to be done to make things work.
