Marketing jargon. Toyota brands its Camrys in trim levels like CE, SE, LE,
XLE, etc. for the same reason.

Nope. The monitor cable remains the same. Communication between two (or
three) cards in an SLI configuration is handled by a bridge (either a ribbon
cable or a small PCB). If your motherboard is...

SLI in Quad Environment Question

Quad 8800GTX? Dell's web site shows a conventional dual 8800GTX SLI as the
top-end configuration. The fact that your box has only 4 DVI outputs (2 per

My X1950XT reports wrong clock speed!

I thought all ATi cards from the X1600 and up had different 2D/3D clock
