    Looks like just slightly past 30k,

    30,499 - '05
    74,983 - '03
    92,007 - '01


    On the last page he turned out a 17,481 in '06 with single 8800 GTX. With that kind of a single card score I would expect SLI scores approaching 26k-30k so I think those SLI scores may still be CPU limited.

    That's like buying a Ferrari and only using it on a dyno. Cripes, build a system and use it for something like games or photoshop or whatever...

    No, it's like buying a Ferrari and winning races with it, actually. It's like a competition for nerds and the like.

    hmmm... I guess that trick of cooling your computer actually does give you better performance.
    I'm dropping out to create a company that starts with motorcycles, then cars, and forty years later signs a legendary Brazilian driver who has a public and expensive feud with his French teammate.

    It's the driver, nVidia hasn't release a driver yet for proper 8800-series SLI.

    That could defiantly be the case. I also don't think it would hurt to move the benchmarking resolution up to 1600 x 1200 or higher.
