Isn't the CPU being bottlenecked to the extreme here? I'd like to see someone run one of those Liquid nitrogen tests on a Quad SLI system and jack the fx-60 up to over 3.5 Ghz or whatever and see what happens. I think the scores would skyrocket. And BTW, developers better be making the next-gen games fully multiprocessor capable, otherwise this CPU bottleneck issue is going to end up hurting the industry.

I dream of having dual socket, dual core Opty's running on 8GB of ram and QSLI. Ofcoarse such a rig today wouldn't be any faster because the software isn't smart enough to take advantage. Us users need to get the message across: "We want SMP support and we want 64 Bit, and we want them yesterday!"

PS. What ever happened to the phase change cooling systems we were promised for $200 at CES? I bet with a setup like that you could atleast get the fx-60 upto 3Ghz or so stable. That might be enough of a boost to feed the monster that is QSLI.

That's right, the CPU. So bottom line is that these cards have allmost no use still, but cost as much as a brand new kidney... Confused
