I'm planning on building a new rig soon. I want to stick with nvidia video cards because of their better linux support. At the same time, I am wanting to go with a c2d 6600. My question is this, if I get a motherboard with an intel 975 chipset will it be able to use SLI (with nvidia) if I decide to go that route in the future?
it only supports Crossfire for dual graphic cards. I don't think it will run SLI. I maybe wrong, correct me if I am.
That mobo will not support SLI.
Check out the Asus P5N32-SLi if your that desperate for SLI.but you surely must know SLI and CROSS FIRE are a complete waste of money.
I'm not desperate for it at all. In fact, I'm not planning on getting two cards when I build the system.
The reason I was asking about it, is for future upgrades.
Adding more graphics power would be easier that way than buying a new rig.
Like i said in my last post SLI and CROSS FIRE are terrible upgrade paths your best off getting a good single graphics card and when you run out of power for your games get the next best thing which more than likely would blow a SLI or CROSS FIRE rig out the water.(eg G80 when it comes out)
