Default Just got my BFG GTX 295's in Quad SLI!

I ordered two Evga GTX295's and a 9800GT for dedicated physics but the other EVGA 295 got back ordered, and then was later cancelled. Tiger Direct cancelled my order because they had no ETA when they would have it in stock. I will never order from Tiger Direct again. So I ended up having to go with BFG instead. I will be selling the EVGA 295 and my Tri SLI GTX260's since I have no need for them. I will try to post some game benchies soon.

Damn, Quad SLI + 1 for Physx. I want to see the Cryostasis benchmark on that system.

Thanks guys I was up all night trying to setup my system and I had lots of problems trying to run Quad SLI with physics enabled but my system would not boot. Everything runs fine with just two GTX295's but as soon as I add the 9800GT for physics my system will not boot. I tried just running the 9800GT by itself to see if it was a bad card but it worked perfectly. I even tried one of my old GTX260 cards to run as dedicated physics and it still didn't work. I am reinstalling windows vista and will try to see if all is well this afternoon.

But I will keep you guys posted.

I would think that a 1200 watt power supply would be more then enough.

Curious to ask, why did you not go with 3xGTX285 especially since you are running 2x30" LCD ? The extra memory bandwidth of the 285 would show benefits at 2650x1600.
