First off, unless you've got money to burn, there's no reason you should need such a ridiculous setup.
Could you give us some information such as your monitor's size/resolution, your budget, your system specs and whether you overclock or not so we can save you a lot of money and recommend something more suitable.

Real life like experience with Crysis or Farcry 2. Might actually scare someone a little to get shot at. Especially if you could get some 3D glasses to go along with that 50" screen. Lol.

TVs are still only max 1920x1200. A 30" monitor is 2560x1600.

And by the way, the GTX 295 is a dual GPU card, so quad SLi means two GTX 295s, not four.

Is it even possible to draw that amount of power out of a US socket seeing it's only 110 volts lol

So depending on the number of amps I doubt it's even possible lol
