    Looks like the spam bots are getting smarter. This one can actually refer to a poster by name. They can't get the context right though.

    No problem guys, and thx fot the compliments :)

    If I switch the X-fi back to the top slot for some reason, I'll verify that the GPU's are both well @ x16.

    Psycho, I meant the top card generally runs hotter (with or without the X-fi), so keep an eye on that 1 :)

    IMO, save your money. A third 4890 will likely give less performance than you hoped for. Diminishing returns is present even with two cards in most games. After having used a quad CF system myself (two 4870 x2's, X48, QX9770 @ 4.1GHz, water) it's really only of use to either increase IQ settings at the current res of choice, or make 2560x1920 a bit more playable. The feedback I got of the owner was that he should have used the 300 to buy an even better monitor and a few drinks down the pub.
