Tri SLI as in 3 GPU cards? I didn't even know you could do that.
I've heard of running GPUs in pairs and quads but always thought SLI setups had to be in pairs. *shrugs*

The bleeding edge of GPU tech is always a funny thing. It's hard to justify spending a $1000 on a multi-card setup that'll be worth like $250 a year later and still be 95% as good as the next generation $1000 setup. Besides the whole driver issue (which is what this thread is about) is always the most problematic for the exotic multi-card rigs. I guess you get what you pay for.
