I have Three XFX Nvidia GeForce 9600 GT
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150289

with a EVGA 680i Mother Board using Q6600.

(4x2058MB SLI RAM 800Mhz).

When i put in the 9600 Gt's (3x) and connect the triple Sli connector on the top, do i cannect the Screen blue wire to only 1 graphic card or all of them?, since i only have one of those wires, im guessing 1?

Okay, i guess im going to return them.

Do you guys have any recommended graphic cards for a Triple SLI on my 680i PCI-Express.

It should be around 200 bucks for each card.

The only cards that support TriSLI are the 8800GTX, the 8800Ultra and the 9800GTX. The cards must have 2 SLI "fingers" and so far, those are the only cards that have them. If you want better performance than a single card get a pair 8800GTS512's and run them in SLI. After mail rebates you can get those for around 200 each. Or you could get 2 8800GT's and put them in SLI for less money.

Anyway unless the cards have those 2 fingers then TriSLI isn't possible.

there is no triple SLI on the 680i chipset, on the only the 780i, and the 790i chipset

Forget tri sli. It scales well in Crysis, but apart from that has been buggy compared to dual card sli. Plus you are looking at $900 worth of cards. For $400 you only options are a single card or dual cards. Best would be dual 8800GTS G92 which is pushing over $400 though. Dual 8800GT 512MB is more like $350+ range and just a step below. Dual 9600GT is under $300 and also very good for the money.

Agreed

Yeah I pretty much agree with that too, although it might a driver kind of issue I still doubt it'll be worth it with todays hardware and software. 5 years from now though, who knows.
