    You can SLI different cards? I mean you are asking about 2x9800 right, with 260?

    It will be PCIEX16_1 running at 16X, PCIEX16_2 running at 8X, and PCIEX8_1 running at X8 as well

    You want to use slot PCIEX8*_2, so your first card is not cut down in lanes.

    It is only possible though to run x16/x8/x8

    Ohh ok, 3 x 9800 then? If so go for it, should give you 1/3-1/4 higher score maybe.

    I ran triple 3870's for a while, scores were about as expected. One card score + second card = usually close to double score. Adding the third card usually added half or a little more of one card score to total of first two cards (Sometimes less, sometimes more)

    Of course though, I think I did that on a x4 slot with the third, so it may have been a little bit limited.

    Ya with 2x 260 you should get 36,000 or more at least

    Test them out and see how they do, then you will know for sure
