To the best of my knowledge, 8800GTs don't support tri SLI. I only have one SLI finger on mine. Unless that's changed recently.

You wouldn't run that in SLI. All single boards.

You don't need to run your cards in SLI for folding.

I am not too crazy about the rail layout on the TPQ 1000W for tri-SLI (or 6X SLI?) applications. The +12V rails are not set up well for that kind of situation.
