    Yes there is EVGA on driver team that makes those SLI Enhancements patches, I'm sure they did it.

    Check out the Overclocking scores from KingPin and Shamino they link them there on the webpage

    you can enable quad SLI 9800GX2/GTX295 quad sli is already possible. just get a ribbon that does it which they probably provide however anything more than quad SLI or Xfire is impossible the drivers dont support it.

    looking at the slots id say pressed up against each other with ever card covering every other pci-e slot. assuming you use a dual slot card. imo i dont see this as really usefull i mean in all honesty with the $$ u spend on a 285 go get yourself 2 GTX295's run the same setup half the power....however i can see this being a rediculous folding mobo....with 7 slots go and get yourself a single PCB card and slap a low profile cooler on it and take off in the rankings.

    this is total shit.

    first off...

    it better have 2 nf200 chips to feed the pcie slots full 16x.

    second...

    wtf is with that gpu? thats a total piece of shit.

    "lets launch a new horribly overpowered gt200 card right before gt300 comes out"

    great fucking idea.

    whoever buys this shit is a total douchbag and i hope it fails miserably.

    Evga must be trying to appeal to the Asus Mars crowd who couldn't get one. Evga knows that a very select group of people will buy overpriced equipment, they see Apple do it everyday.

    Big deal...it is just BS marketting, they could have just as easily used a 6-pin and an 8-pin like some other GPUs and had the same amount of power...

    both the new video card and that motherboard are monstrosities. I mean holy hell. The size of the case you would need for those things... I don't think they would fit in mine!

    I don't think the people buying these will be putting them in a case. They are more likely going to be laying them flat on a workbench/table and calling it good.

    It won't fit many cases at all. I don't think it's even meant to go in a regular case at all, benching only.
