as far as i know u cannot use 2 ati's on a mobo which supports SLI - SLI is an nVidia technology ati's counter is "Crossfire" so u need a new "Crossfire" mobo to get those dual ATIs working

so your suggesting a total conversion

@johnson: if u want to know more you should read IT mag's articles: SLI vs. CrossFire | Hardware Secrets

imho, this thread is like "Ask the Audience"-joker... 1/3rds will give you the wrong answer

Thats exactly what i meant m8. The money you could spend on a 3 way SLI would be less than what you would spend on a pair of 3870x2 and a motherboard which is crossfire capable.

OcUK Value IP35-S Intel P35 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard
HIS ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2 1024MB GDDR3 TV-Out/Dual DVI/HDMI (PCI-Express) - Retail x2

= 570 quid-ish, thats a motherboard and 2 x x2's.

XFX GeForce 8800 GTX 768MB GDDR3 HDTV/Dual DVI (PCI-Express) - Retail (PV-T80F-SHF9) x3

= 660 quid-ish, thats for 3 x 8800gtx, assuming he even has a 3 way SLI capable motherboard, its still cheaper to go for the Crossfire option.

IMHO, both are an absurd waste of money when a few months away they will inevitably be replaced by a faster and cheaper alternative.

CodeCseven, you can use 8800 ultra or gtx but not a mixture of the 2 types.
