    It remains to be be seen whether ATIs implementation can actually handle different GPU speeds. Don't count your chickens.

    I don't think nvidia's SLi will work to well with different cards as one of the schemes is alternate frame rendering which requires matched GPUs to perform well.

    Why gold or platinum? Copper and Silver are better.

    Gold is a superb conductor of electricity, but thermally it's barely better than Alu and certainly much worse than copper or silver.
