    Nice review W1zzard. Thanx for showing us how worthless QUAD SLI really is, plus its a waste of money. I would consider Crossfire or even Dual SLI but QUAD seems like another ploy to get our hard earned cash. All this just for the biggest e-penis :nutkick: :laugh:

    My next upgrade will only be once DX10 boards come out. ;)

    Wow - you must have read one or two pages of that article, it certainly does not beat in every benchmark - the X1900XT comes out on top in many of them in that article (but less than half).

    They beat the hell out of QSLI in the end for stability problems.

    no, you cant put 4 current gpus onto one pcb without major loss of signal integrity and the need for ALOT of pcb layers

    Fixed code:

    if ((resolutionX<1600) && (resolutionY<1200))
    Don'tBuyQuadSLI();

    I just do not understand personally.... I bought my rig in greed for speed, coming from a SLI rig (ASUS A8N-SLI deluxe) with 2 7600's to quad crossfire "junk", to quad cores NTL from dual core, the dual core with 2 NVidia cards spins circles around my new rig as far as video. ATI has piss poor support, total crap, zero support for linux disables 3 of 4 vid cards (nvidia supports *nix, both SLI and twinview, zero with ATI in *nix), in windows still garbage, sure I know the bus gets cut down. ATI is worthless, all I can hope is since AMD bought ATI support actually starts. Before it is over I will probably end up selling the board & video cards and buy a real mainboard.

    Just my 2 cents,

    TheeMahn
