wow. this is JUST the type of thread i've been looking for...
edit: NOTE I didn't realize this thread was for 290 cards.. but here's the thing I'm interested in adding a THIRD gfx card to my system, either now or later. the only problem is that.. my third PCI-E 2.0 slot, it can only do 4x! but I want to use it for a pure-physx solution. A) is it worth it B) technically, will it work??
so, can someon tell me in practical terms.... what kind of performance loss will I suffer, if I try and plug in a gtx 290 into my third pci-3 slot..? this would be the third card of course, with the first two being GTX 580. (yes, yes, I know. this is WAY overpowered. by no stretch, do I need this technology now... I just, I want to know what's possible now, and in the future.. thanks :)
I have two brandnew GTX 580. and evemore exciting, i have THREE identical 28" hanns-g monitors (3ms) and I'mgoing to hook them up.. and play starcraft 2 across all three screens, at like 5790x1900... :P
pretty rad, huh??
oh yea, I'm also going to use them for professional/production work :) video editing, audio production, web desig... on and on... that's what i do :)
