Its come down the the wire, Paypal money is going to clear transfer in anywhere from couple hours till next day hopefully.
Here is the planned setup eventually, Well.. Just need to last long and have power to spare.. And here it is, I currently have a 5870 and Am going to build off that so P55 regulates me with 2 of them in Crossfire where as only really high end P55 boards with NF200 Chip will allow me to run it but it doesn't scale well etc. Now the X58 build will allow me to have 3 of these beasts in CF later on when needed, but I've heard they don't work well in Tri-CF because of insane heat output.
wellllll sorry this came at such a late time, but I think you should scrap the tri-cf setup planned for the future. GPU's come out iono around every 6 months or so, save the money you'd spend on those 2 other cards and get yourself a newgen card. Trend always seems to be better performance for less heat/wattage. P55 was a good choice I think. Just a thought, have fun with your new rig!
