It does have me thinking of a cheaper aproach to a triple crossfire setup though, wich i initially thought about 3 seperate HD7970's, and that totals 1650$ going by the MSRP prices.


But it's also possible to use a dual GPU HD 7990(850$), with a single HD7970 card(550$) and get triple crossfire that way for 1400$ even, wich saves 250$ right there wich can easily cover the cost of the water blocks for the cards, and there shouldn't be much difference between either setup in practical performance terms, as the GPU's and memory on the HD7990 aren't clocked that much lower anyhow...
