MSI P55A-G55 is a mobo I'll looking at as its cheap and supports SLI - One of the very few P55's in New Zealand that does.

However it only has 1 Ps/2 port, so im wondering how I would connect my Mouse and Keyboard?

Also can anyone check up on the SLI compatibility? - Newegg says it doesn't but MSI's website and a few people have bought it etc.. but then a pc builder said it didn't on Yahoo answers (I think it does though =0).


Thanks =)

Yep! the MSI P55A-G55 is one hell of a bargain!
From all accounts i've read it supports SLI just be aware it doesn't ship with an SLI bridge.
The documentation concerning SLI compatability is terrible,my guess is they wanted to keep costs down and decided not to pay for the SLI logo and licence fee.
My P55 mobo only features one PS/2 port as well but i don't even use it.
I don't even think Win7 will post with a PS/2 keyboard lol!

Not all P55's support SLi and this MSI board looks to be one of them.

You'll want/need two of these babies... http://www.pcwb.co.uk/catalogue/item/BELUSD39
You'll probably find them cheaper after a search on the web (not sure of vendors down your way) but the other option is buy new usb keyboard and mouse, either will sort you :)

Thanks and also thanks to moto.

Are you sure it doesnt ship with an SLI bridge- and if it doesnt is any SLI bridge compatible? also is it easy to put in the MOBO? (ive got a family friend who has a computer degree but i dont want to have 100 difficult tasks for him to do) or is it something more complex than seating a graphics card =)

Yes it's more complicated than seating a graphic card and no, not just any SLi bridge will work as they normally ship with the motherboard and are of the right length to span the slots.
