Let us know how this goes. I have read both of these articles (expecialy the 3 screen one about 4 times) and its really had the wheels turning. I want to run trip screens but its the massive gpu power that is needed that is worrying me... not so much the displays themselves.

I've pegged what the power consumption of my own system is and i should have a little bit of a head room with my OC and stock 465 GEs. On that note it seems according to CP and Purolator both my deliveries are in Moncton so i may actually receive them tomorrow. Here's hoping

Well i realized i never took any pictures or benchmarks of the 2 470s in sli, that is mainly due in part to the fact that the primary card would tend to overheat due to the fact that the twin frozr heat sink dumps all the heat into the case and in a CM690 it doesnt have the right fan placements to pull the hot air out of the case fast enough.

On the other side of things, i am very impressed with my 6870s in crossfire with the two games i've test it with so far (BC2 and Need for Speed Hot Pursuit). I've benched it with 3DMark06 and posted the results in there. I can take pictures of my setup if anyone is still interested in seeing them at work.
