SLI does not help in Adobe video programs.
I think there could be some interest in turn-key systems, especially PC systems built around Adobe software.
i7 970 ( Over Clocked )
Asus Rampage III Extreme MoBo
24 GB Dominator DDR 3
Win 7 Pro
OCZ Vertex 3 SSD
5x2TB WD Blacks in Raid 0
USB 3 Drive Dock for Backup
Nvidia GTX 580 3GB
Antec 1200w power supply
Antec Dark Star DF-85 Case
Adobe does not utilize SLI. I originally had an Nvidia 590, but even though it uses a single slot, Adobe only recognizes half of it, so I went with the 3GB version of the 580 instead. When working with Red Footage in Premiere, it's nice to have a good video card, nice to have lots of RAM, but it's really all about processor power.
Mega delayed response, I updated my last post because I said my i7 950 was running at 3.4 ghz, when it is actually at 3.75. Brain fart.
Also, Adobe does not use SLI, as others mentioned, which is why I think cards like the gtx 580 are perfect. In fact, pass mark has the 580 FAR outstripping the QUadro 6000, which is $4,000 vs the gtx 580 at $469 or $600 depending if you have 1.5 gb or 3 gb of ram. Now I know Quadro is supposed to be better for 3d rendering programs, but I have yet to see any benchmarks, and for video work, in my research gtx is as good or even way better.
I really wish Adobe supported SLI.
BUT, its all a ton faster than my FCP systems.
Too bad windows is still windows.
