Graphics Cards for MSI K9N4 SLI-F mobo

Need to find out the following:

- which PCI-E x16 SLI Graphics Cards are 'proven' compatible with the MSI K9N4 SLI-F mobo

- Will performance be better using one high end card like the GeForce 8800GTS or with two lesser performing cards running in SLI mode? (and does it make a big enough difference to even consider any of this?)

Thanks for any input

  1. 1) Any PCI-E graphics card should work with any PCI-E motherboard.
    2) No, one high-end card will in most cases give you the same or better performance as two mid or low end cards. Plus if you get 1 8800GTS and aren't happy with its performance, you could always SLI that.
  2. " Any PCI-E graphics card should work with any PCI-E motherboard. "
    True, but I'm asking if anyone has used the MSI K9N4 SLI-F and if so, what makes/models of Graphics cards worked well in SLI mode.


    " Plus if you get 1 8800GTS and aren't happy with its performance, you could always SLI that." LOL R U treating?

    No, but think about it. If 1 high-end gives you as good or better performance than 2 mid levels, your upgrade path is still open. You may not have the funds now, but in 6 months you probably would and you can boost your performance even more at that point.
