^ What resolution do you play at ??...
Tri-SLI might not scale well as Dual-SLI...You would need to go Tri only if you are having a 2560X1600 resolution screen...If anything lower, then there wont be much real world performance difference/ increase...
Well, the bus speed is not your limiting factor, so going 16x 8x 8x or if you had 16x 16x 16x, there would be no real difference. The performance boost you would get from 3 cards however, is also negligible. As others suggested, stick with what you have already just a bit longer, if you can.
Thank you for your info
I see that the new 300 series will be coming out but will they be backwards compatible with pcie 2.0?
and yes I have a 30" monitor so I can easily reach the max 2560 x 1600 res
I was just wondering for future sake the motherboard I have now has a 16x/8x slot in it so if I where to put say 3 gfx cards in the motherboard the one 16x/8x slot would be brought down to 8x.
so I would in a sense be running 16x 8x 8x , I was just curious on if I would get a performance hit or no.
but considering that the new 300 series will be coming out I probably will wait and go with 2 or even 3 300 series gfx cards
now another question and this is talking ... down the line a bit but with the 300 series same question as my 1st post will a 16x 8x 8x config hinder the fps in games? and should I stay with just 2 300 series running at 16x 16x?
Yes they will work on pcie2.0 normally you should stay with just 2 (if they're actually more powerfull) but given that the games will be more demanding and you will play at 2560x1600 maybe 3 will be better.
We will see what the specs are apparently later this month when they plan on releasing a flavor of the GTX300.
