I have a question to ask. Is it possible to put in 3 ATI 5970 cards together in crossfire mode, thus having a total of 6 GPUs?

Thanks!

No.

4 GPUs is the most that is currently supported.

that would be a waste of money anyways.... i don't see where someone would need more than a single 5970 since it is basically more firepower than dual GTX 295's...

I imagine the scaling would get pretty sloppy past Crossfire into the tri and quad fire setups, especially with immature drivers.

He means QuadFire Vs QuadSli I think. But seeing the HD 5970 power its no kidding faster in CF than GTX 295 in SLI. Why 3 cards? I just got one HD 5970 on th way and plan to keep it 3 years until I add another one in CrossFire. No you cant put 3 HD 5970 together and its a big wast of $ and electricity.
