That raised bit with the barbs might actually help with tubing. I'm glad that even though EVGA makes custom cards, they make versions with blocks.

Maybe it's just me, but I'm not a fan of the plastic shroud covering the entire card...I'd rather see PCB, copper and acetal. It just looks like the engine bays of some cars...everything is just covered with a piece of plastic instead of letting you see what's really under there.

580 with 3GB of onboard memory? I'd like to see some benchmarks in single, 2x and 3x SLI...even 4x SLI on Folding or CUDA benchmarks.

That is true, and it makes getting out bubbles a little easier sometimes. The 3GB models would be awesome with a multi-monitor setup... :D

You'd need a hell of a monitor to support the high-end resolutions these things would be pushing.

I'd be willing to do some testing on these 580's if Tom's wanted to provide me with a pair....(I'm looking at you 4ryan6...)

Does this thing really requires 3 power connectors 1x6 + 2x8????

Dude, you could get a sunburn with that many monitors.

I'd love a 3x3 set up. I could play a game on one row, do movies and other stuff on another row, and maybe I'd take up day trading or something just as an excuse to have the third row :)

I'm sure I could find ways to utilize even a 2x3 setup...although, I'd have to push for LCDs with thin bezels.

If you take 4 of those in Quad-SLI...that would be the most powerful desktop graphics setup to date. I don't think there would a game you couldn't max out at resolutions of 2560x1600 and more.

you'd need a serious motherboard, along the lines of the SR2 in order to really get the full benefit of quad sli (in order to get 16x/16x/16x/16x)... Hopefully someone will grace us with something like the SR2 for the LGA 2011 platform... I'm already drooling dreaming about it.
