Hy there folks !!!

Is there any damn way to put Asus 8800GTS 320 MB in SLI on Asus P5W DH DELUXE ???

I've read that Nvidia is making new support for intel chipset to support SLI but if it really is i still can't tell !!!


WILL THIS WORK ?=) or i need hacked drivers

Intel Q6600 2.4ghz
Intel SSD 520 120gb
Asus Arctic Square Cooler
Asus P5W DH DELUXE ( Latest BIOS 3002 ver. )
Asus 8800GTS 320 MB
LC Power 6600 (600 W)
PATRIOT PC2-6400 DDR2 800Mhz 2x2gb

I don't think you will get the performance you are looking for out of 2 8800GTSs in SLI. They are old cards and won't perform well in today's games. That motherboard will not run SLI anyway. Yes the new chipsets do, but not that board. I would sell your card and buy a newer one to be honest.

OK, and what do you suggest as new GPU, since i only need to run WOW and Dota 2 ...

I would suggest the HD 7770. That will fit your system nicely and its pretty affordable. Have you overclocked your system? I suggest you do if you haven't, that will give you some more fps in games and let the gpu breathe a little better. There are lots of articles on the web for clocking that cpu as it was very popular in its day.

Well yeah i tryed and got to 2.88ghz but with old RAM which was 400mhz instead 800. Will try again, i hope i reach 3.0ghz !!! Prob is the MB has it's tricks ... now i just updated BIOS to latest 3002 ver. Will see what can i do ...

Anyways for GPU i was thinking MSI6870 HAWK but its very hard to get here in sLOVEnia =)

if your ram showed 400 it's running normally. 2.88 might be all you will get with that processor. be happy with it. personally I would make the ram faster and leave the processor "stock".

google overclocking the q6600. some of what you find will bring you back to this site probably.

I wouldn't expect too much more from what you have and monetarily and performance wise not worth an "upgrade".
