Hi guys, well i just bought myself this computer for my own birthday.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Well it comes bundeled with a GTX 295 but my brother just sent me an email that he just bought me this without knowing i bought that new computer.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

So that i dont waste it im going to go buy a 1000 to 1200 Watt PSU so i can run them in SLI but i have a question. I have never run anything in SLI or Crossfire but i was curious if the card or with the computer im getting comes with an SLI Bridge? if not where would i purchase one?

It doesn't appear to come with an SLi bridge.

And newegg only has CF bridges, wtf?

well you can always order one from EVGA or BFG and few other places.

if you have a 295 and you have registered the card with EVGA, just call them and they will send you a bridge for free.....

2x295gtx power consumption is 680 watts under load but then again sli on 295 only shows its muscle on a 30'' screen running crysis at 2560x1600 with 4aa in anything else 2 gtx 285 wil jus bout match it

Best solution

SLi bridges have traditionally been part of the motherboard package and as such should be in with the gumph and paperwork that comes with your pre-build, if it does not contact the builder and shout at them.

SO are you saying that i dont have to buy another PSU? my 800 Watt can run them in SLI just fine? im not going to overclock them or anything just play Dawn of War 2 and Champions online with it. and i have a 30 inch screen aswell that i got from newegg.

You probably don't need to buy a new PSU. From zooming into the pics, the psu has 50A on it's 12v rail, which should be enough to run quad SLi.

That said, its going to be cutting it close, if you can afford it you should get a 1kw psu

Wow, can we switch siblings for a while? The best thing my sister ever got me was an empty birthday card!

I just got off the phone with a rep over at EVGA and he told me as long as your 295 is registered all you have to do is call them and ask for a bridge.....
