  1. Yes, the GX2's are supported. Have you checked the video card in another system?
  2. hi, thanks for replying.
    actually 2 mounths ago when i bought the system, i bought it with the asus P5B deluxe board, but since it didnt had SLI, and the new 680i chipset just launched the same day, i returned the P5B and ordered the Striker, i took about 2 mounths to arrive :) , and on my last board the VGA card worked OK,
    how can u be shure that the 680i chipset supports the GX2 card ?
    can my problem be related to the power supply , is 580w enough for my system ?
    10x for helping, hope to hear from you again
