I'm still very pleased with my EVGA 280 GTX setup in SLI.

None of you work for NVIDIA or a preferred vendor so who's to know if infact NVIDIA might just release something better during Q4 I'll step-up if it's available and if not I'll go tri-SLI finally...

Who gives a %#$! if his system is "weaker" than yours? Not everyone feels compelled to upgrade every 2 months. Blacklash and I have both owned systems that were just as powerful/stronger than yours (my CrossfireX would've spanked your system silly, and his 4870X2 was no slouch,) and we both prefer a single GPU over it because gameplay feels more refined on it. It doesn't always come down to money; sometimes it's preference.


Just what are you going to use all that power for, anyway? Most PC titles play just fine on a single 260.

For a group who doesn't know anything, you sure ask us a lot.

I agree Xion X2, this guy loves to show off every chance he gets. I have seen so many theads about his system and what he wants to buy. We all know that you have 2 GTX280's in SLI, it seems as if you need to remind us every 4 days. When new gpu releases are out Jakup may post 1 time to tell us how great it is and that's about it. You on the other hand keep posting the same BS. Like dude get a life serious.

Like I said before, none of you even work for NVIDIA so if a refresh does comes out I'll be glad. If not, then I'll go for tri-SLI which will be even sweeter with the price drops going on in the market.

This is a forum and Xion X2 small D I C K doesn't account for much when he speaks. You two should get together sometime for the local D I C K heads anonymous meeting. You both can kiss my Irish ass while your at it! HEHHEHEEHEHEH! Xion X2 just keep it up you insecure Prick! You always have something to talk about with that open mouth of yours which I'm sure you put more then what meets the eye down it. It's a good thing that I belong to more then one forum. I've posted refreshes on my rig and they welcome it with open arms you pricks! HAHAHAHAHA! Not once have they ever assumed that I was bragging. With **** heads like you forecasting as if I was well I got news for you all I'm not. I will write my my own history not any of you. You got something to say Xion X2 why don't you just PM me directly! Technology means rejoice, share, invent, experience, and most importantly you two kissing my sweet ass.

Digital, I hope for your sake that you're still in high school spouting crap like this. Reported.

You sound retarded. I'm not banned! 2 is better then 1 for SLI. If I had tri-sli you would comment something stupid also I'm sure. Man, this forum really did go to **** with sore born pure losers like you and Xion X2. There still remains some great members on this forum but with every batch of apples you always have a couple of bad ones to throw out. This forum still rocks so I'll just put those who suck on my ignore list. Xion X2 and you don't account for much so I've got nothing to lose into the equation.

Digital_Trans, you ask the same question in this thread that you did in a previous thread. If I may comment - this board has a Rumor section for a reason. People post speculations and rumors as to future and upcoming products. Some of the information is accurate, while some of it is not. I might suggest that for future inquiries about upcoming products, you start there.

Also, I don't understand why you try to intimidate people with the "size" and "power" of your system. Having two video cards in your system does not mean you play games twice as fast -- it just means you paid twice as much as most. Sure, SLI has its benefits. However, most people prefer one video card as it is seemingly less troublesome. I wouldn't be waving SLI around like it is the cure for cancer if I were you. You're right, two is better than one for SLI -- because it wouldn't be SLI if there were only one.
