I just downloaded patch 1.1, the frames double basically, where I got 50 fps I get 90 now:) 

I highly suggest that people with an SLI setup Download the latest patch for the game.

:)

what do you guys think of grid. from what i've read, sites are rating it quite high and players are rating it quite low.

I love the game frankly, and no 177.39 not compatible with other cards other than 280 and 260 GTX:)

Everyone I know that has played the game absolutely loves it, including myself.
I was really impressed with it, especially after the disappointment that was DiRT.
It's not perfect by any means, but it's still great and fun to play.

no GX2 I took back the 280 GTX I'm waiting for a price drop. I test Quad vs SLi, and my GX2 outperformed it:)  (in most benchmarks) ofc I couldn't test over 1080p:p  but I don't really care for anything higher:D 

I did test GRID at 1920x1200 and it doesn't take too much of a performance hit, its really well optimized:D 

And I do have a second computer:

Athlon 5000 BE
2 gigs ram
250 gig HDD
9600 GT OC
Corsair 620HX
Asus SLI-Deleuxe:D 

I just don't have a monitor, its hooked to my tv, and Sims doesn't play on a reg tv for some reason.
