Hey Friends.

I am new in this great fourms. and i need some help so..
at first, i build my new gaming PC and i have a small Sli problem.

I like Asus products so i'm thinking about this Hardware

Asus Maximus IV Extreme-Z // 'For Intel Core i5 2500K'
2X Asus GTX 570 DirectCU II

NOW my main Question is:-

(( If i buy two GTX 570 sli . and in the near future i like to add another one
to be on 3-WAY for max Preference
i Read on many website > the DirectCU II Cards take 3 slots places !!
and 3-way bridge need an Mobo that allow it!!

can Asus Maximus IV Extreme-Z allow me to make Sli Bridge of 3 GTX 570 DirectCU II???

Thanks all.

Thanks you werner123

i feel i now understand what you mean.

so.. 2 Cards in SLI (Asus GTX 570 DirectCU II) will be enough for "Extreme Gaming settings"

with this HW

CPU - Intel Core i5 2500K
CPU Cooling - Corsair Hydro H100 Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
PSU - Corsair HX1000W
Asus Maximus IV Extreme-Z
Asus GTX 570 DirectCU-II SLI
Memory - Corsair Vengeance-8gb ddr3-memory (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8)

is that a good idea for NOW ?

570 SLI is a beast setup but remember that games like metro 2033 and crysis (maybe BF3 tooo)eat up 1400mb+ VRAM when maxed out on 1080p.i tested metro 2033 personally and almost 1400+mb was used.
