Sli x16 x8 Tags: Nvidia Motherboards SLI Gigabyte Graphics Last response: June 29, 2011 9:16 PM in Graphics & Displays Share RallyTs June 29, 2011 8:44:27 PM Hello, I was wondering on the Gigabyte GA-Z68MA-D2H motherboard would I be able to SLi two GTX 560's and not lose performance? Because on the slots theres one x16, one x8, and a third one x4. Do I need to buy a new motherboard or can I get away with SLi'ing the two cards together one in the x16 slot and the other in the x8 slot?

That board will be fine. m 0 l RallyTs June 29, 2011 9:16:17 PM Alright just making sure before I decide to buy a second GTX 560, I did look at benchmarks and the performance didn't change by a wide eye on x8 motherboards and such. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
