    Two GTX260s for the fun? ....

    This is very, very cheap. Could this be the UK gaining US prices...

    Nah, there's not really any hit at 8 x 8 on PCI-E 2.0, I ran two HD4850's on my old Anus deluxe P45 and scored 23,500 in 3D Mark 2006 with them!

    Lost mine years ago, am so used to not worrying about SLi/Crossfire configurations any more with this x58 board, forget about i7, just the options for multi card setups makes it worthwhile.

    Has anyone ever ordered from these guys? They have a nicely priced GTX 285 as well which would go in my new i7 build very nicely :)
