Why no AA tests with Oblivion? I know that NV cards cannot do HDR+AA in it, but disabling HDR, and enabling AA would be great.

Oblivion does not look really good without HDR, so FSAA with no HDR is less desirable mode than pure HDR.

We had time constaints with this review. If we had more time, we would definitely think more benchmark options.

Thanks for the reply. Its an opinion that Oblivion does not look good without HDR. There are lots of people who prefer AA over HDR. Any chance of revising the review, when you get more time? Thanks.

could some of the problems be connected to the enermax 660W PSU? U should have tested it with PCP&C 1KW PSU, then maybe some of the problems would go away (im not an all-out-tech guy but dont the cards draw more current when stressed hard at higher res? That would explain some of the stability issues u had). ...and u should have OCd the FX60 :), me thinks you were cpu limited. ;)
Just my 0.02$

"After numerous crashes we decided to switch to a 1000W power supply unit bought in Northern America, as we believed that the 660W power supply shipped with the system (as there are no higher-wattage power supplies in Europe) could not supply enough power for the machine. Even after the 1kW PSU was installed, the crashes and freezes remained."

Thanks this review! I've been wondering what the 10k system was able of providing the gaming community. I see it doesn't offer a damn thing over a $2500 system. How could something like this be released to the public well before its ready... Oh well.

I am very disappointed with the results of Quad SLi .They are totally unexpected. I was thinking that QSLi would have an efficency of more than 40% than normal SLi but that's not the case. Maybe nVidia could use the XDR RAM which is bieng used in PS3 and is developed by Samsung. I hope you pass on this suggestion to nVidia. Thankyou 4 da review
