    the 3 ati cards cannot be run in SLI as in windows. Basically, the only advantage of multiple cards is to run multiple monitors at once. To need 3 of those cards you'd need to be driving 5 or 6 monitors.

    The nvidea card is far more powerful. If you're looking for graphics horsepower on 1 or 2 monitors, that's definitely the way to go.
