Can i run 2 video cards if my mobo is not SLI ready? Tags: Motherboards Graphics Cards SLI Last response: January 8, 2008 5:57 AM in Motherboards Share inspecter71 January 8, 2008 4:58:03 AM My motherboard is not SLI ready but i was wondering if running 2 of the same video cards is still possible, if so i would like to know how to do this. Thank You, More about : run video cards mobo sli ready Groveling_Wyrm January 8, 2008 5:15:34 AM If you have 2 pcie ports, then yes you can. However, in doing so, only one card will have full power, while the other performs worse. Generally this is not recommended. BUFF January 8, 2008 5:57:22 AM do you mean run 2 cards in SLI or just 2 cards for multi monitor use (& that's even without mentioning ATis Crossfire ...)? It all depends upon which mobo, which gfx cards & intended usage. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
