Hi all,
I have a Asus M4A79 Delux Motherboard and run 1 Evga Nvidia 8800 GTX SLI card.....Is there any way to run dual 8800 GTX's on this MoBo ????? I was looking to buy another card like my OLD but very reliable 8800 card.....
Any help would be GR8..............Thanks..................

Your mobo does not support SLI , it only supports xfire.

You should look at just purchasing a new card to replace the 8800GTX.

Whats the rest of your system specs?

Opps you are correct ,,,, Sorry for the mistake.... AMD Phenom II X 3 720, running at 2.8 no overclocking, 4 Gig Ram, Win 7 64 OCZ 850 power supply Plenty to do the job......
Thanks...............

If you don't want to retire that card, you can get new card and keep the 8800 as a deticated physx card. Even if you got a radeon card there is a hack to enable physx with a nvidia card added in (Nvidia eventually changed drivers to prevent physx from being enabled with a radeon card present, it is a work around to disable that)

So what it sounds like is that i cannot run 2 of my 8800's for double the punch so to speak ?

Yeah, the best you could do if you want to keep the 8800 is get a second card (non sli) and use one as a deticated physx card.
