Hi all, just a general question.

Im running windows 7 ultimate 64 bit, with 2 Asus GTS 250 Graphics cards, along with a Asus M3N HD/HDMI motherboard, which i believe to be Hybrid Sli enabled. I just wandered how to enable the Hybrid technology and do I need any new drivers?
I was a little concerned from reading older posts suggesting Hybrid Sli doesnt like windows 7. Is this true?

Thanks, Mark.

I don't think you can Hybrid SLI using the GTS 250, you can only Hybrid SLI using a GeForce 8400 GS or 8500 GT. Besides, AFAIK, Windows 7 doesn't support Hybrid SLI either.

So there is absolutely no Hybrid SLI for Windows 7 64-bit?

My GeForce 9300 is a pretty good integrated graphic card, I was playing Napoleon Total War yesterday and it was pretty fun

I wish I could use that power along with the power of an Nvidia card

sorry to say it, the hybrid sli is only available on specific mobos.
I have one, and the performance is just so-so, and aero is non-existant.
Best for dual monitor setups.
specific gpus are:
mobos:nForce 720a, 730a, 750a SLI, 780a SLI and 980a,
GeForce 8100, 8200, 8300 and 9300
Those support full hybrid sli(boost and power).
GPU boards:8400 GS and 8500 GT (boost).
9800 GT, 9800 GTX, 9800 GTX+ 9800 GX2, GTX 260 and GTX 280(power).

The biggest draw back is the onboard memory loss.
IN my case it's maxed to 512. so i've already lost that much memory(not that big a deal with 8gb of memory, but i'd prefer to have more available for cad and more).
With anything less than 64 bit, it's pretty much worthless.
