P5N-E SLI with GTX 260

Hi All, i'm finally gonna upgrade my 9800GT to a GTX260, only thing i was worried about was if the new graphics card will work ok with my Asus P5N-E SLI mobo, not planning to do any overclocking or anything like that.

Reason i was worried is that i've read that some people have had some compatibility issues

TBH i dont really have to upgrade, if there is some risk of it not working i might not bother

what do you think?

p.s i have a vx550W Corsair PSU bought on a recommnedation from this site :D

    Hello,

    I do not see why it will not work. The topic you have mentioned is from 2008. I am sure there is already some BIOS verions released for the motherboard you have to avoid any problems like this in the future. Just make sure you update your BIOS of your motherboard prior before installing the new card.

    Regards.
