>I think I’m done with computer gaming. I just don’t have the money to do it well. I invested for the monitor – and it’s served me well, but I just can’t believe what NVidia just announced – SLi x 3. I have 3 major problems with this:
1.) Cost – If you want 3 8800 GTX Ultra cards you are spending 3 x $700, that’s $3000 just on video cards. I’ve never been one for building a $5000 PC, and this is hands down the way to do it.
2.) Space – Who has room for 3 oversized, extra long cards that suck 200 watts each? 1000W minimium is going to become 1500W, then 2000W.
3.) I jumped on Quad-SLi and there has been no further development. They’re DX9 so that’s it… not even next gen optimizations. There’s so much more that could be done with them as ususally all 4 are not being used properly… why optimize when you can just throw another one in.
I’m very curious to see what happens with Spider from AMD/ATI. I have not like ATI in the past, but I expect AMD will do good things with them.
