Closed Can I use an SLI video card on a non SLI motherboard? Tags: Nvidia Graphics Cards SLI Motherboards Graphics Last response: September 8, 2010 3:18 PM in Graphics & Displays Share snowkid2themax September 8, 2010 2:38:36 AM Hello, I was wondering if you could use an SLI video card on a non SLI motherboard. I don't actually plan on using two video cards so I was wondering if I could just use the SLI video card normally. The parts I'm working with are: "GIGABYTE GA-P55M-UD2 LGA 1156 Intel P55 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard" "GIGABYTE GV-N98TSL-1GI GeForce 9800 GT 1GB Silent Cell 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card" More about : sli video card sli motherboard | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Best solution jryan388 Graphics card Authority September 8, 2010 2:42:40 AM Yeah... And you can use cards like the GTX 295 (sli single card) or radeon 5970 on a non-sli motherboard. Almost all mid to high end cards are "sli/crossfire ready", but they don't need to be used in sli/crossfire to work. | Report abuse Helltech Graphics card Master September 8, 2010 2:43:04 AM Yes you can use it. Almost all cards are CF/SLI compatible nowadays. It doesn't matter, you'll be fine. | Report abuse snowkid2themax September 8, 2010 3:11:49 AM Best answer selected by snowkid2themax. | Report abuse Mousemonkey Graphics card Master Motherboard Expert September 8, 2010 3:18:01 PM This topic has been closed by Mousemonkey | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>Can I use an SLI video card on a non SLI motherboard?> Related ressources: ForumDual non-SLI video cards in ASUS Maximus Motherboard won't boot ForumWill a sli PSU work ok on a non Nvidia motherboard ?
