Motherboard HElp!!!?? Tags: Motherboards Configuration SLI Last response: June 9, 2008 6:05 PM in Motherboards Share cowboi123 June 7, 2008 1:42:39 PM For SLi configuration, do you need a special Sli capable motherboard or will a normal one with 2 pci express slots be enough?? More about : motherboard HyperZoot June 7, 2008 2:12:42 PM Posting your MOBO would help to answer your question better. Some older(and cheap model) MOBO's had 2 pci-e slots but were not necessarily sli capable. cowboi123 June 7, 2008 2:47:24 PM i am planning to buy one...so i have to decide which one to go for..

HyperZoot June 7, 2008 3:37:21 PM Ok that helps. Now your decision depends on graphics. AMD? You will need an Intel board. nVidia? Well, you will need an ..ahem.. nVidia based MOBO. cowboi123 June 7, 2008 5:03:17 PM ok, i am going for a quad 9300 intel....i have short listed three mother boards, Asus P5KC LGA 775 , Asus P5N-D LGA 775 and Asus P5N-E-SLI L775. fleakiller June 8, 2008 5:25:33 PM Ok P5KC is for crossfire (ATI CARDS),P5N-D is for SLI with the 750i chipset, and the P5N-E is for SLI but with the older 650i chipset. I dont know alot about nVidia chipsets sorry! what graphic cards are you looking at? cowboi123 June 8, 2008 6:00:46 PM thanks anyway....i'm looking at the 9900gt HyperZoot June 8, 2008 6:55:46 PM So if you are going with nVidia and going to eventually use them in SLI, you will have to stick with an nVidia based MOBO. fleakiller June 8, 2008 7:32:03 PM check out http://www.it-review.net/article/hardware/motherboard/2... , also google/msn on the 750i chipset lots of info there to read cowboi123 June 8, 2008 10:34:08 PM thanks aloy guys..... fleakiller June 9, 2008 5:49:56 PM cowboi what did you come up with??? if you dont mind sir cowboi123 June 9, 2008 6:05:52 PM i went for the Asus P5N-D LGA 775 based on the article you gave me.....so, thanks!!
