    No, you can't do quad GTX 760

    Midrange has never had the quad-SLI capability; only 760, 660 Ti, 560 Ti 448-core, 465, 275, 55nm 260 and 9800GTX+ were 3-way capable.  All other "6" cards were 2-way SLI all the way back the 6-series only and that probably isn't going to change as multi-GPU setups have historically been the reign of less affordable models, and are their own incentive.

    How CPU watts relate to degrees? - How can overclocking affect CPU lifespan? - TEC/Peltier definitions, formulas and temperature estimations

     
    For Intel processors, 0.123 x TDP = Continuous Amps at 12v [source].  This includes around 30% overhead, so it isn't minimum for operation.  TDP is not actual per CPU, it is a range for multiple processors to qualify for the same OEM cooler and power rating, and allows Intel to debut future processors in the same TDP.

    nvidia has seemed to make its motto to only enable on its highest tier, started before, seems now they want just the best of the best, hopefully a better reason than them just wanting to milk uber-enthusiasts

    First off Quad-SLI refers to 2x dual GPU cards in SLI. And 4-way SLI refers to 4x single GPU cards in SLI. I know it's 4 GPUs either way, it's just that this is the distinction that Nvidia makes so I thought I'd point it out.
     
    Secondly there is a reason that 4-way SLI only typically works with top tier cards. It's called diminishing returns. The more GPUS you add to an SLI setup, you will see less and less percentage of a performance increase with each card added. Nvidia knows this of course and doesn't obviously think it's worth it to them to offer mid range cards for 4-way SLI. I'm sure the performance just isn't there to justify it otherwise I'm sure they would allow it. But it's benchmarks where 4-way SLI shines, and for those benchmarking 4 cards, they are going to be buying the best.
     
    Not to mention for the money spent you could have better performance from a lesser quantity of higher range cards. You are always going to be better off with a lesser number of cards, that have a higher performing GPU.

    Yes, that is my point. 4-way is really only worth it for benchmarking the top cards. It wouldn't be worth it in price or performance for mid-range cards.

    how come system builders get 4 way sli enabled gpus like gtx 780 and normal ppl dont -
     
    does nvidia provide special bios / drivers for system builders so that they can have that option .
     
    i saw on youtube a 4 way gtx 780 sli rig made by nightmare .
     
    so how come he is using 4 gpus
