Ok, please don't think I'm an idiot, but I've had a 8800 GTS 512 for awhile, and have been thinking of getting another for SLI.
I know that nVidia will be releasing the Big Band II at some point, and I think you'll be able to mix and match GPUs from the same driver/series.
I was wondering, if the 9800 GTX and the 8800 GTS have nearly the same specs, why does the 9800 GTX have 2x 6-pin connectors, and the 8800 GTS only need 1x 6-pin connector?
A follow up - why does the 9800 GX2 only need 2x 6-pin connectors as well? If it's 2 9800 GTXs, shouldn't it need more power than that? I know that each of those PSU connectors can supply some serious power, but it seems so odd logically.
I just thought this was odd. My PSU only has 2x 6-pin connectors, and I was thinking of using the old 8800 GTS as a PhysX processor or in SLI and get an upgrade card.
