hello again.
i have renewed most of my system (see previous posting)
all seems ok....touch wood!
i have a
nvidea ge force 8500 gt
athlon 64 x2 dual core
m2n42 motherboard
i was wondering about sli features
i have a medion ge force 6610 xl ver 1.1a
is it possible to connect with the nvidea one or is it essential they be identical cards
please advise

For SLI to work you need cards with the same chipset, not necessarily identical cards, so you'll need to get yourself another 8500gt
