An Old SLI question... Tags: Graphics Cards SLI Graphics Last response: June 12, 2012 2:14 PM in Graphics & Displays Share JaredMKah June 11, 2012 8:33:16 PM Now, when i mean by old, i mean socket type AM2+ old... So, not long ago i asked a question here about my computer freezing up. The lightning strike that blew out the surge protector fired my ethernet port on my MOBO. So that was most likely the case. I'm bidding Asus M4N82 Deluxe Mobo, which has a three-way SLI. My frist time having an SLI Mobo. The Card im using atm is an ATI Radeon HD 5770 card. Was wondering if it were at all possible to use TWO different cards that are not the same Manufacture? Was going to pop in an XFX GeForce 9600 GT. or would this cause to much trouble in the system?

Ask ! Get the answer kawininjazx June 11, 2012 8:45:34 PM You CAN NOT SLI an Nvidia and an AMD/Ati card. You can SLi similar NVIDIA cards. AMD/Ati uses crossfire, so if your board does not support crossfire, you have to SLI your cards. Since you already have a decent card, I would just use your 5770 until it doesn't suit your needs. However, once you play a game that maxes your 5770, your AM2+ CPU will probably be maxed too. m 0 l JaredMKah June 12, 2012 6:20:48 AM Well thanks for the posts. Sorry if i do sound a wee bit foolish. You were all a great help though! m 0 l JaredMKah June 12, 2012 6:28:19 AM One more thing. If i wanted to use the same card, as in 2 HD 5770 cards, would it matter what kind it was? Mine is Diamond Radeon HD. If i got a Saffire or other, would it matter with the Crossfire? m 0 l 4745454b a c 175 U Graphics card June 12, 2012 2:14:29 PM No it won't matter. You'll need a different board however as your does SLI and those are CF cards. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources SolvedEvga GTX 770 SLI, PSU question.
