Re: Graphics card heat
The way you were thinking of it, it seems, is that in buying 2 cards, you were effectively still having only one, because you'd get half the heat from each card, and so wouldn't be using all the performance of the two cards. That would be a useless proposition.
It just uses the 2 cards to spread the workload, but they still end up working as hard as each other, because either one card wouldn't push the whole scene on its own anyway, OR, if one card could, the second card just doubles the load, and produces more Frames Per Second.
