Hello everyone!

I'm on the way to buy a new computer, but I have some hesitate. I want to Phenom II x 4 965 Black Edition, Gigabyte GB 790FXTA-UD5, some 3GB DDR3 and 2 x PALIT GTX260 SONIC 216SP 896M for SLI mode. My hesitete is there have any problems to run NVIDIA SLI on this GB 790FXTA-UD5, because it is designed for ATI CrossFireX?

  1. I dont think there is any problem!

    I have 2 question:Please clear this too!


    Can we crossfire in sli certified motherboards?
    Can we SLI in crossfire certified motherboards?

    Thanks!
  2. if u want to sli in crossfire board, u might need to do modding to your drivers... :)
  3. Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

    1- For a Crossfire two ATI GPUs, you need a mobo with chipset AMD
    2- For a SLI two nVidia GPUs, you need a mobo with chipset nVidia
    3- You can do a Hybrid Crossfire or Hybrid SLI, that is one nVidia GPU and one ATI GPU in a chipset AMD or nVidia.

    for the thrid option, its mostly for a mid-low-end gc with igp... :)
  5. Thanks everyone! And happy easter!

    There something that is not clear for me...
    What do you meant with "mobo" for Nvidia or ATI chipset? Is this is some kind of driver modification for NVIDA/ATI chipset driver or it's modifyed NVDIA/ATI drivers?

    Thanks in advance!
  6. I mean that you can get a better performance in SLI with a motherboard with chipset nVidia because is designed for support the SLI that you want.

    P.D. Another way is re-sell your GTX260 and buy an ATI 5870 that is a very good GPU.
  7. Thanks again!
