Should i get three of them? They're basically better than the 75€ 9600gt. Komplett.be - Webshop voor PC componenten, MP3 spelers, Foto & Video, TV, Gaming en Navigatie.

If so, what Am3 board allows triple SLI? The cheapest one.

I was going 1156 at first, but am3 is just way cheaper, and allows me to buy a quad, which performs actually the same as i3, but i just want to have an AMD quad. :p

I know three cards aren't as good as one card with the same performance, but really, +-120€ for three 9600gt's is awesome?

Cant SLI more than two of the cards so it would be pointless.

Why not get a single good card instead of 3-mediocre ones?

No triple SLI?

Since that costs double the price of three 9600gt/gt240.

What about this? Two 5750's, the best price/perf i could find.

I'd swing a 5850 for that price. The 5750s are only the same speed as a 4850, but have DX11.

I got a 5850 and I'm loving it... I can finally play Bioshock and Crysis.

Which means double gts250, and with currently having only one, that'd be some improvement. Also, mabbe some overclocking?

I'm selling my current rig for 700€, and i can buy a pc with the twice the power! :D

:agreed[COLOR=Black] You don't need a special motherboard, it requires less space, there is less heat generation, less power consumption and less noise.[/COLOR]

Well, if you read the thread title you'd know.

I'm probably going to get 2x 5750's or one 5830 and get another one later.

Rhetorical question.
