Good info there worshipme. I need to quit thinking small I guess. It only makes sense that if you have the funds to run a dual card setup, you'll have a larger monitor to go along with them. Thanks for the linky.

I'm running two 4870s in crossfire at 1680 x 1050. I'm glad to see that it performs respectably compared to some of the higher end cards at that resolution.

Just look at the test systems. WTF?

EDIT: They even used a 790X /facepalm.
Soo Tom's did a redo article on the 955 vs i7 check it out (this is a much more even keeled article I believe)

lol u cant compare a sli configuration to a quad sli one

ps: gtx 295=dual gpu so gtx 295 sli= 4 gpus
