32 FPS avg.......................sure shows how much the I7 and Tri 16x PCI-E Lanes on the classified board speed things up ...

Thanks for the Demo ;)
Yep, seems the first run was the worst, had a 9FPS dip :( After that though it seemed alright. Did you run the 280's on a 775 board at first? Was there a major difference in FPS? I'm hoping to upgrade in the next month or so.

I did have the single 280 and 280 SLI running on a Evga 780i Board with an E8400 OC'd to 4 Ghz - The Benchmark numbers (written on scraps of paper in a pile somewhere) are on par with taking the I7 numbers I provided and dropping approx. 15 FPS from the single and SLI numbers....sorry, lost that info.

The one Benchmark where there isn't a huge difference running multi GPU's is the Crysis Warhead Benchmark
1920 x 1200 - Enthusiast - no AA - Tri Sli 280's = 61 FPS
16xAA = 31 FPS
Yes, their was a pretty significant change in score going from E8400 to I7.....for FC2 anyhow, but I understand it is optimized for Multi thread.

Yeah from what ive seen in single gpu setups the i7 makes little to no difference in most games for fps, but in multi gpu systems it can have a fairly large impact.

Wasn't Hybrid SLI introduced and discontinued within 9th series Nvidia cards? 200 series have 2D/3D mode for that.
