yea i'm happy with my choice, what i didn't know is that it game with the pci-e adapters for the power connectors. before i knew it i bought a new power supply that has two of those pci-e power connectors already on it.
i should have it tomorrow and up and running by tomorrow evening. I'll keep you guys posted on my thoughts about it. I just hope my processor doesn't cause it to bottleneck, ya know? AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+
when in doubt overclock it a little bit and yes it will be a minor bottleneck at peak framerates but nothing that you will notice given it will likely be able to render 60FPS+ under any circumstance you care to mention which is more than you can discern and equal to the refresh of LCD's meaning you won't be losing a thing.
p.s. I agree with the rest SLI is a terrible waste of money with criminally shoddy driver support who's creation was a marketing ploy meant for those who simply want without financial concern.
Great! I got my card I'm still at the office though so I can't play with it until I get home. I have a n00b question though. Which PCI-e slot to I install it to? The one closest to the onboard device panel (audio, lan, etc) or the one farthest from the onboard device panel? The reason I ask is I already put the manual for the board in the attic and don't fee like digging it out when I get home I'm assuming its going to be the first right?
well I got it installed. it runs great! I'll play with it more at home.
my next question is : is there a guide or something for helping me configure the card in the nvidia manager? or should I set everything to let the application handle it? I've never had a card quite this powerful, I wanna make sure I'm benefiting fully from it.
