Dual Video Cards on ASUS P8P67 PRO (REV 3.1)

I am looking to upgrade my machine. My current motherboard is a ASUS P8P67 PRO (REV 3.1), which currently runs a Geforce GTX 560Ti. I am looking to grab another video card (GeForce GTX 760) as my main video card and keep the 560Ti in the box to run a third monitor. I am curious if these board supports multiple video cards since the cards these days are so wide? I am not necessarily looking to do SLI or anything, but would like a true three monitor setup without using a slow external usb adapter which I am using now.

Thanks,

  1. i believe that motherboard does support sli and crossfire. I used to have revision 3.0, and I sli 680s on it. I was able to fit that fat asus direct cu2 680 and a regular sized msi 680. No problems.

    You can do a 3 monitor setup with the 760

    Your system will drop from x16 to x8 x8 with 2 cards installed.

    I assume you wont be gaming on more than one monitor

    here's 760 performance with 1, 2 and 3 cards

    2Gb or 4GB won't mean beans

    Is it possible to SLI two different video cards? The current 560Ti is an EVGA, and plan to buy the same manufacturer. I wasn't sure if it is possible despite both being an Nvidia chipset and I have heard mixed things on that...
  4. Any Nvidia GTX 6xx or 7xx card can run three monitors on a single card no problem. Before the GTX 6xx you would have to had two cards for three monitors but not anymore.

    No

    here are also very few restrictions regarding what GPUs can be grouped together in SLI: only the model and memory amounts have to match. For example, a GTX 580 with 1.5GB of memory could only be paired with another GTX 580 that has 1.5GB of memory, and a GTX 690 only with another GTX 690. Beyond that, manufacturers can be mixed (e.g. ASUS with MSI, EVGA with PNY,) clock speeds may vary (stock versus factory-overclocked,) the VGA BIOS for each card can be different, and no special drivers or software is required.
