For a more extreme fix (once the Crysis bugs go away), get SLI x 3 like Ryan tried out for this review. In some cases the third 8800 Ultra offered benefits right off the bat, and not just a frame or two per second. In other games you donn’t see the benefits until hitting huge resolutions like 2560*1600 on a 30″ monitor. It makes sense that if you are going to drop about $2000 on graphics cards alone, that you better get a big monitor to give them some space to show off in.
“Can you run CrossFire with only one video card? AMD shows us that they have it working and were confident enough to even let us sit down and play some games and run benchmarks on their new ATI Hybrid CrossFire system. CrossFire gaming for the masses?”
