Default Re: 8 Core GPU. yes that's right, 8.

well as new technology gets here old technology gets cheaper. so as quad sli and crossfire get here, using 2 graphic cards will become standard and cheaper. but i agree nothing needs the power of 4 7800 gtx's lol. wonder how big of a power supply youd need to run that....

First of all, if that motherboard was ATX, then you would have no PCI slots (meaning no sound card etc.) and it would be cramped. Unless you have watercooling (which would be expensive as well), your case will get pretty stuffed...

Actually there was a review on this stuff, its supposed to be stupid. The newest drivers don't work with some bios' so then one cor is disable, so you have to get the old drivers for all the cores to be enabled....its a juggling act. Also, the perfomance enhancement is minimal, 2 7800gtx setupwill pwn a 2x 2core 7800gt setup anyday.....surprisingly
