Asus 680 DirectCu II TOP SLI Question

Hey, quick question. I intend to use a Rampage IV Extreme with 2 x GTX 680 DirectCu II TOP and I was just wondering if there would be any extra space for additional cards while still allowing the two cards to run at 16x. Is there a possible configuration for this, or would it be better to stick with dual slot gpu's?
Thanks :)

  1. Dont SLI 2GB cards, it's dumb and once you have 2-3 cards and you bottleneck that's 1500 bucks down the drain.

    EDIT: Most people SLI for either more monitors/future proofing, 2GB is detrimental to both, 2GB is bad for multiple monitors and will reduce frames drastically, plus, for future proofing, a 2GB card will run out of juice faster than a 4GB card.

    Why would SLi'ing 2GB cards be dumb?

    Alright, but would you have any idea about 3 slot gpus in general?
  4. If you're going to do a multi monitor setup I'd reccomend either Sapphire 7970 OC Flex cards or the ROG Matrix 7970 cards. For Nvidia, I'd reccomend either the Twin Frozr 4GD5 or the EVGA GTX680 Classified.

    Aren't the Matrix cards 3-slot gpus?
