Triple SLI is all about the Benjamin's. After all the outlay for a triple SLI system with three GTX280s is over a thousand dollars just for the graphics cards alone, not counting the PSU, the CPU to power the system, or the other high-end components required to properly configure a system with three video cards. For those wanting the ultimate in gaming experience three GTX 280s is enough power to push pixels with ease. NVIDIA's solution which includes support for PhysX, GeForce 3D Vision and the major APIs including DirectX 10.0 and OpenGL 3.0, the GeForce GTX280 Tri-SLI system is more economical in price than three GTX 285s or two GTX295s, making it an interesting choice. One thing to notice is that sometimes performance will taper off with triple SLI as not every application supports it.
