Or would the game only pick up the first card?
In Windows? Probably, using SLI. Under OS X? No.
1. NO. World of Warcraft is a five year old game. You don't need more than one.
2. It is impossible to combine the power of multiple cards.
3. It is impossible to do SLI.
Say what? Certainly GPUs can join forces through technologies such as Crossfire? As for three GT120s... just get a HD4870.
Crossfire is ATI technology.. These are nVidia chips, so no, no Crossfire. Moreover, nVidia has never made SLI technology available for Macs. As far as I know, the only reason one would want more than one graphics card in a Mac is to support more than 2 monitors.
Not in OS X. And SLI is physically impossible.
Could you not do Crossfire under Windows, assuming power is not a problem? I've seen some "small" PSUs that fit in the optical drive bay, I'm sure one could power one of the 4870s and the regular power supply the other.
I would not do it because it blocks out one of the PCIe slots, which means that I can't plug in all of my necessary components that I would BUY a MacPro for...
Or am I rambling?
Yes, this is possible. It has been done, in fact. It uses ALL of the PCIe slots.
