i to have a setup something like yours
and i had a lot of trouble with windows vista 32 bit os
as soon as I moved up to windows 7 64 bit it made such a big differnce.
with the windows vista 32bit the drivers just didnt work right for some reason
i was getting split screen just using 2 pny 9500gt geforce cards and a whole lot of flashing and what not,i thought i spent all that money putting together a good machine for nothing,it ran me in parts alone 1200 dollars, i thought using a 32bit os would make it easier to work with but it didn't,it just
didnt.I found out that on some computer using a 32 bit system doesn't always use all of your memory capacity you could have 6 gigs but it will only use lets say 5gigs of the 6 saving one for other things
but with a 64bit operating system it has no choice but to use all dedicated memory together,the i7 was made to utilize your systems memory,the 2 video cards im using are ddr2 i was also told that it wont make a differce ddr3 or ddr2 with video cards,any way after installing windows 7 64bit os i haven't seen a better video than what i have now, i was planing on a third card but it look good enough now
so why waist money. ps im only using a 550watt psu,4gigs of memory,the I7 920,2 pny 9500gt video cards a evga X58 SLI LE mother board and win 7 os.
