Skyrim is playable at those settings.

Would love to have it zero but think I'll wait until the prices come down some. This is already a very strong setup for a single 1080p. The SLI scaling I've seen on these 3 570s is just nuts. Those Skyrim settings (96xAA) really are playable, and the AA is being applied. Running 48 or 96xCSAA seems to be about the equivalent of SSAA as there are hardly any jaggies on anything.

I've seen near 100% scaling in several titles (probably because I usually run lots of AA).


Muppet - thanks. Congrats on your new 680s.

Thanks, man. Mounting the rad was easy, but some of it had to do with the case as I already had some vents that I could mount the radiator bracket to that holds it upright. I got it from FrozenCPU.


Slawter - thanks bud. Picked up the 680s yet?

One more pic. Don't like this one as much because of the fingerprints, but it shows the SSDs on the lower right side:




Crysis scaling (Very high, DX10, 8xAA, 2x SSAA):

I have a feeling you maybe right, but these are a nice jump in performance over the 580's.
