Ok so my friend jus bought a galaxy 9800gt from newegg. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814162028 The card looked a little weird to me when i first saw it (i installed it for him) but i couldnt put my finger on it. Then it hit me the card had TWO sli fingers on it. It looked exactly the same as the pictures on newegg except for the fact that it had the tri sli capability. So i thought maybe its actually a gtx in the wrong box but it is short like a gt has only one power connector like a gt and it has 2 dvi ports on it which the galaxy gtx has a dvi port and a hdmi port so that cant be it. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814162021 Then I plugged it in and it said the bios is a 9800gt. So what the hell is with the tri sli stuff? has anyone else experienced this from galaxy? its freakin me out here
 
There are some 9800GT's, repeat some, but not all of them, that are tri-SLI capable.
I guess it was up to the manufacture to include support or not when they built the card.
Palit and ASUS also made 9800GT's that were tri-SLI capable. But, as far as I know, this was the lowest card on list to support it.
