Hi,

Every vidcard with 2 "fingers" will give u 2/3/4 way SLi/Crossfire.
Keep in mind tho that dual gpu card only support 2 cards = quad SLI/Crossfire,
this due to windows limitations.

I am new to geforce.. But i think i will have a go with them soon

Often 3/4 way SLi/XF wont give the extra boost u would expect. Dual cards give the most bang for bucks.
Scaling is sadly not 100+100+100 but 100+80+40. Numbers are given as an example tho.

haha, this was fun, google for radeon 6870.. 99% of the commercial photos is shot from that side that dont show the fingers.. coincident?

ahh, i think they perform fine together.. and its fun..

200 fps in bf3 all ultra/1920

a couple of 6950...

I guess they do something right..
