    Two days ago we told you about the Quad-SLI going to mass production. Now Alienware the leading manufacturer of high-performance desktop and notebook systems is the first and only company on the market with a new Liquid Chilled Quad NVIDIA SLI Graphics solution powered by CoolIT Systems. Available exclusively on the Aurora ALX system with Quad SLI, Alienware's new Liquid Chilled solution is the best way to overcome the heat produced by four GPUs. Do you know what that all means? It means that we have a new winner: a fully configured Aurora ALX costs $14,800 USD! Bye bye XPS 600 Renegade.

    Atleast the cooling is nice now. Before when I saw quad sli with air cooling it burned my eyes because the intakes for the fans were choked from the cards being so close together. Although I do agree, overkill. Although Dell will probably take this design since they bought out Alienware.

    Yeah, becuase game compaines are never going to expect ppl to have that high end of a computer on a large scale so they will really not need to spend that much. lame

    PCI-E variants of the 6800GS dont have any pipes or vertex units to unlock. only AGP variants.

    Yeah my dad showed me an article on it a week or two ago. I guess Dell was too lazy to design their own quality gaming machines so they bought somebody else that knew what they were doing. Given, Alienware is over priced, but they know what they're doing.

    Well this is actually a gaming rig, in contrast to the Dell XPS which has an Intel processor which completely negates the quad sli.
