SLI / Crossfire

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?
  2. 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...............
  3. ok cool , the psu is plenty , whats your budget?
  4. Sorry had to meet a friend for breakfast....LOL....It's not the budget as much as how much i like my GTX card..........I have no trouble even running Battlefield 3 I just thought 2 GTX's would be killer......

    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)
  6. 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.
