I think it's long past time we have GPUs socketed on the motherboard like CPUs. Think of motherboard with socket CPU and GPU both overclocked and wearing matching TRUEs Or even multiple sockets ... endless possibilities.

Whmm As long as it is quiet I wouldn't mind.

I wish GPU's were installed like CPU's but GPU's have a lot more stuff that they need so it isn't possible.

The output configuration does bring up a question for me though.... Can anybody with an X2 card confirm if they can run two monitors off of it, or is that not possible because of the internal crossfire?
