Hey guys, I have a PNY Geforce 8500gt. I just recently ordered a PNY XLR8 Geforce 8800gt. Both are sli so i can run dual GPU's. Now for my question. If i have them both in at the same time will i get better framrates or with it only run off the one that the moniter is plugged in to?

You cannot run SLi with 2 different gpus

run the 8800gt by itself

why on earth would you order a 8800gt now, no offense but this sounds fake so maybe ive been rick rolled!

Sorry you have to run just the 8800gt, sli essentially only works between 2 of the same cards

Hey if your not a gamer, a cheap graphics card like that is all you'll need to help out in the OS.

yes run the 8800gt, and game your noggin off!

not to mention that the 8800gt was a beast back in the day and im sure can still hold its own with some older titles (and newer ones on low-med) im guessing its about as powerful as a 5750 without dx11 of course...

anyways OP run the 8800gt and go slaughter some noobs!

not the se or 768mb crap variant

sorry for off topic but its a cheap upgrade for anyone interested..
