Alright, so I just went through a 3 hour hair pulling and screaming session last night trying to make my HD 6950 work with my P5N-E SLI.
I didn't bother to research that combo before I bought it, big mistake. I tried that oddly long solution by keith, and it didnt work.
So I'm now returning this card to newegg and planning to get a nvidia GPU.
Right now my plan is to get a MSI GTX560Ti Hawk. Are there known issues with this motherboard and the GTX 5 series?
Im also using an OCZ ModXstream 600W PSU. It has dual 12v with 25A on each rail. Its kind of cutting it close to the minimum, so I plan on underclocking the Hawk for a bit (honestly I'm buying it because I'm hoping the better components will make it last longer than my GTS 8800).
