thx everyone i wasnt sure bout this but am now lol,another dilema for u all , im upgrading to sli but just 1 graphic card to begin with, will ineed to matching pr or will i be able to mix & match when i want to get 2nd card ?
You need 3 things. Firstly your motherboard must support SLI and have 2 graphics card slots. Secondly the cards must be Nvidia cards and must be SLI ready, it tells you on the graphics cards website which cards are SLI ready, ATI cards have their own version of SLI called crossfire. You cannot use ATI cards on SLI. Thirdly the cards must be the same. You cannot mix and match.
I have an sli mobo and one Nvidia 7600GT. Every time I start windows a bubble appears informing me that I obnly have one card in and cannot so the Sli card thing. How can I stop that irritating thing from happening?
