Wow four cards on one mainboard. How many more frames will that bring in the FSX??? Just had a look at the board, wow is the only thing that I can say.

I'm a bit weird when it comes to simpit design approach. I look at the computer and display aspects before I even nail down my preference in aircraft type. I'm a very visual based gamer. I like surround-screen and projector based gaming in general. I already have 4 cards in that setup, they're just not all 8800GT 256's yet. I'm currently running 2 8800GTS 320, 1 7800GTXKO and 1 6600GT.

It is a good deal, and surprisingly enough I am surprised Futureshop has the best price around.
Usually Tiger Direct is cheaper, however from this link you can see that isn't the case.

If SLI was in the equation I'd go with an Intel Core 2 Quad, the new nForce 780i SLI chipset motherboard and 3 8800 Ultras. That is one big chunk of change though. Then throw in a Matrox TH2G and 3 1280x1024 projectors. That would be my "dream" setup for current technology with surround screen and SLI. The problem with technology is every 6 months something new comes out.
