Default Quad SLI doesn’t work on XP !

If you are after Quad SLI with two 9800GX2 cards you can forget about playing under XP. Nvidia clearly said that at least for the time being Quad SLI driver works only under Vista.

Both Vista 32 and 64bit are included but so far the current Forceware 174.53 for XP doesn’t have support for Quad SLI.

3-way sli doesn't work on XP, why would quad-sli work in xp then?

(remember how the previous quad-sli drivers for xp sucked?)
