ok not too sure where i should post this but here should work.

currently i have..

OCZ 2gb 800mhz ram
XFX 2x 9800gt SLi

and i notice no difference with SLi. someone told me i need a new mobo and a 64 bit OS which i can't buy atm. so..

should i get 2 more gb of ram or a gtx 260?? which would help me more?

Do the games you play support SLI?

Did you enable SLI in the nVidia control panel?

Did you attach the SLI bridge?

2. Yes

3. Yes

thats not bios, you come to bios when you start up your pc you need to push a button, i have delete for example.

no i meant that was the version of my BIOS. sorry. i think they locked my BIOS somehow for some reason.

and to give you an idea of how bad it is i get 15-25 frames in a gunfight in Crysis with SLI! seems crazy to me.

what would that do? i read around and someone said they prevent mobos from being overclocked when its not safe. and i also found out there 2 versions of my video card..some green version or something but it won't SLI with my org card.
