    Arris,

    So...I talked ya into matching cards ey? :p....Now I'm gonna talk you into tri or quad fire :haha:

    I was doing some benches for some literature I am having printed for my 'new' company. Thought I would share some of them with ya.

    So one more card in AvP would give me 15 fps or slightly more. I'll pass :)
    The AA/AF run through Heaven at 62 fps is pretty sweet, although I'll see how Crysis 2 and BF3 run on this before I consider more cards. Plus I can't remember offhand how many cards my motherboard supports, and I'm only running 750W Corsair PSU. Think I'll stick at two for now. Thanks for the benchmarks though.

    Yup, thats the investment part of tri and quad setups. on some games you get the "15 FPS" more (15%) and then on some games like stalker, Dirt2, Crysis, etc, you get much more. Crysis Warhead for example, With the third card, I go through the "From Hell "level ( out of the train station to the attack in the wooded swamp area without ever going below 40 FPS. Same effect with STALKER series. I can push everything, and I mean everything to the max (AA and all) and not drop below 60 FPS. anyway, just giving ya some **** :)

    Think next time I feel I want more performance I'll probably invest in the latest tech :)
    By the way, what voltage you running the Asus 5850s at to get up to 1000Mhz core speed?

    Hey I forgot to include this one. A very discernible and practical use of tri/quad fire.

    The difference here is almost 20% in average frame rate, and that unplayable dip is not there.

    Anyway, Asus 'Smartdoctor' is set at 1.299v @ 1000Mhz core (I don't know how accurate that is BTW)

    I am eyeing up my next personal gamer as well. I think I am going to wait for the Bulldozer and see what that turns out to be. and as I understand things, the (7000) series (or whatever they are calling it will be out shortly thereafter.

    And exactly how toasty are the GPUs getting at that voltage all stacked together. I'm guessing your 1000CFM is keeping them in line, but what sort of jet engine noise levels do you have? :)

    When I use the "1020Mhz" profile, They will run up to about 88c +/- a degree or two when the ambient is 20C I am amazed that they all run within a degree or two of each other.
    As far as noise....lets say i am looking at radiators :haha:... It's not horrible. I don't have a meter but I am guessing in the 45db range? This thing has three 250MM fans, they are exceptionally quiet. the VGA fans are the worst offender.
