Hi, I just received my 2nd card, pny 9600gt 1gb to make 2 in my system, the board is a8n32-sli deluxe with ezplug option, everything I have read including the manual are not very specific of what is needed for sli and not needed! I have a XPOWER 780 psu with a 20/24-pin optional and multiple pcie 6-pin plugs as well. Basically I don't want to over power ANYTHING on this Baby, so I have been trying to decide do I use the EZPLUG or not, and if not, should I use the 6-pin pcie plugs with 24-pin power to the board or use only 20-pin with 6-pin pcie and that's it? OR would it be better to use only the ezplug for the cards with the 20-pin power? Thanks for the help!

1) Use the 24pin ATX connector on the motherboard

2) You need an SLI bridge to SLI, which should've come with your motherboard.

3) I would recommend plugging in one PCI-e Power Connector into each card and skip the EZPlug.
