Will there be a noticeable difference if I go with this Card versus GTX 285? My Cousin is planning to build his new rig and we are having a discussion about this. I'm just not sure which card is better value in terms of speed and performance. His Specs

I7-920
ASUS Rampage 2 Extreme
6gb Dominator 1600Mhz
640 Caviar Black
1250w Coolermaster
V8

Many Thanks.

That board has 3 PCI-E slots. I'm not sure if you want to pay for 3. You can always upgrade when the price is better, but that could be a while.

I'd suggest this eVGA board instead. It's $70 less, supports three cards, and gets better Newegg reviews.

As for the video cards, I'd try one GTX 285 for now. Add another if/when needed. Add a third only if really necessary. Currently GTX 285 Tri-SLI is the fastest thing available. It even beats two GTX 295 cards (Quad-SLI).

I've heard about GTX 285 Tri-SLI faster than QUAD-SLI. By the way, I also read from other forums regarding adding different type of card and assigning as physx? Can I buy Single GTX 285 and add 9600 GT as Physx? Do all motherboard with SLI support this? And Is this a good idea?
