I have 2x 6950's but they both only have 1x crossfire bridge. I read all over the place that people use these in a "triple fire" configuration. Does anybody know where I can find one with an additional bridge? Is this called something specific?

6950 Sapphire

With AMD cards, you don't need a special bridge and you only need 2 of the normal bridges for it to work. What you do is connect one bridge between the 1st and 2nd card, and the 2nd bridge between the 2nd and 3rd card (6950's and 6970's have two bridge connecters on each card).

On a totally unrelated note, your sig. Why are you using 470's in sli over 6950's?

looks a bit like he owns both sets. the 6950's beat 470s all over the place
 
I am using 470's because of 3D vision. They were in another computer when I got my 3D monitor. I wasn't intending to use 3D vision at first, I just wanted to do 120hz, but after trying out HD3D for my AMD setup, I liked it and decided to see how the 470's would work on another system. As it turns out, they were awesome for 3D gaming.
