Hello - I have a comp that I am trying to upgrade so my kids can play diablo 3 when it comes out. it currently has two geforce 9400 gt video cards in sli mode. I have already upgraded to a 650 watt power supply to cover a better graphic card but my question is can i take out the two cards and just put in one card (maybe something like a 560 ti?). will i have to change any settings or anything on the computer if i do that? am i just better off getting two cards again? any suggestions much appreciated - thanks

cant see any reason why you couldnt just uninstall the driver and remove the 2 cards--put in a gtx560ti and install

1. Download latest driver for new card
2. Uninstall drivers
3. Turn off machine
4. Uninstall old cards / install new card
5. Boot and just say no if windows finds new hardware
6. Install downloaded driver
