Closed SLI/Crossfire Question (noobish) Tags: Graphics Cards SLI Crossfire Graphics Last response: November 29, 2010 8:22 AM in Graphics & Displays Share Kenny646 November 29, 2010 7:02:10 AM Okay,am in the market for an 1156 board at the moment; and am looking to crossfire/sli later on for some extra performance. Now, to my understanding...Crossfire works on all boards with two pci-e slots? Most of the 1156 boards have this listed anyway. I would like the option of going either way however...and I can't seem to find any mid-range boards that list SLI compatibility. Is it the same kind of process? being that as long as you have 2 slots you can use SLI?
