by the way this is the XFX XXX edition as is out of the box.
With a little more o/c and some great cooling, you can hit the mid 9000's. You wouldn't believe how much more points you can get if those cards were runing around say 30C.

My guess is that the next WHQL with 7950 will have QUAD SLI support. Just a guess of course.
Actually there are official drivers that come on the CD that ships with the card, I'm not sure of those drivers are WHQL certified but those should be comming along very shortly. I doubt it will support Quad SLI as the current ones o nthe CD do not allow it, only the beta drivers do. Rumors from computex are saying Quad SLI official drivers should come out at the end of the month. And there's a few reviews out on the XFX XXX 7950, including some o/cing which yielded some negative results when o/c too high.

Try oc'ing the GPU and see how that goes. I'd be curious, but wouldn't expect much.

Thanks!
Actually, I'm gonna hold of on OC'ing this GPU further than it comes until I see some results from others. If I change my mind, I'll post the results immediately. I want to at least wait until I get one of my tornados in the case blowing across the video card. I don't really feel like putting in one of these obnoxiously loud fans until my fan controller comes from Newegg in a couple days.

Understandable, but by all means push the hell out of that FX 60, she's made for it

Hey jAkUp: Did you try overclocking each of your 7950's individually before putting them in together?

Just curious.

No.. I just tried them as a whole.

This isn't my maximum overclock though, I just kinda picked it and stuck with it for now.. I may try to push it later, but really, I don't see much of a point till I get my Conroe

We'll I guess I'll give it a go, at least I'll try to see the optimal settings the drivers detects. I'll let you know.

Comparing the 7950 to the 7800GTX 512s in SLI, the 7800GTX 512s are still slightly faster but mine are also factory overclocked (580/875). When overclocking the 7950 (I essentially bought a reference card and stock is 500/600) I can get pretty close. I'd say it would be worth it for you especiallly if you can sell your current cards to recoup some of the cost. I got a pretty good bump in speed going from the 7800 GTX 256 SLI to 7800 GTX 512 SLI and the 7950 (especially when overclocked) is just a little behind the 7800 GTX 512. I think the 7950 should be faster than you current setup and it also gives you a 512M card.
