I plan to be running up to 4 video cards in the same rig(will start with atleast 1 or 2 within the next month).
thank you for your help,I can't wait to be pumping out some points for the team again.
I would partially agree with blue: don't get anything less powerful than a gtx 460.
The GF104/GF114 core are still the champion folder in my mind, ppd/w and ppd/$ they score top 2 iirc. Cheaper to buy and less power hungry than the gtx 580. For now the 580 may output some crazy numbers (though we don't know for sure), i would advise against buying base on those beta.
Get what ever deal you can get your hands on: 200-250$ for a gtx 580, around 80-150 for gtx 460 to 560ti.
If power is no object, then 4 slot filled with enough gt200 core can still give big points, and heat your house at the same time...
