Okay so I have some extra money to spend and I want to run SLI with two GTX 460's. I've been looking at SLI with different versions and haven't found a direct answer to my question. I'd like to buy this card:
So the two cards are okay to pair up with each other, in fact I like the External Exhaust on them for SLI. But, unless you can figure out a hack to get them to work in SLI on your AMD board, it's a no-go. You would need to lay your hands on a SLI bridge as well.
I've found a hack to run SLI with my AMD chipset and I do have an SLI bridge and will most likely get a second one with the new card. Thanks for letting me know. I'm gonna make sure I have enough room for another card and go ahead and buy it.
I just used the SLI mod from xdev and I have the optional start up but it won't show me the SLI option on my nvidia control panel. Is there something else I need to do other than download the mod and start up? I've been looking into it and haven't found help with it yet. I'm using windows 7 64bit.
I got this hack working on my am2+ 790x board with two 9800gt before pulling them for a gtx 460. Not all boards will work with the hack but continue your search for the hack as you may have gotten a old one or a bad install.
