ASRock's Z77 Pro4-M doesn't support SLI, and since the GTX 690 has two GK104 GPU's inside does that mean I won't be able to run it on my motherboard? My brother says yes. I don't believe him...

Since it takes one PCIE slot it will run

It doesn't support sli because it doesn't have 2 pci-e slots for graphics cards to go into. Being the GTX 690 is two graphics cards on one pcb (backplate of the graphics card) you should be able to use it in your motherboard just fine. Just make sure you have a sufficient power supply and connectors. Hope this helped!

^Above posters are correct, it will run like a champ as far as the motherboard is concerned.

Agreed it will work this is a perfect solution for someone who doesn't have the ability to place 2 cards in there case. You will be fine powering up your 690 given you have a power supply that can support it.

PSU and case will be the real possible constraints. The 690 is the lowest-power dual-gpu card ever, but I'd still recommend a quality 600w PSU for it. And the 690 won't fit in most mid tower case designs, just something to keep in mind.

it will run fine. just that you cant run 2 690s in one rig. if you are thinking about buying a 690, dont bother

You can run two gtx 690's you would just need a tower that could support it but either way once you get beyond 3 way sli things tend to hurt performance in games rather then help. Plus his motherboard won't support SLi anyway well slot wise at least :)

I already purchased the GTX 690, should be coming in on the ninth. As for the case and power supply, I'm putting the whole thing into an NZXT Vulcan running with a SeaSonic X-850. Nit planning on buying a second GPU for another 4-5 years.

a 690 with a pro4 is dumb. you smack a 1000 dollar video card with a cheap 100 dollar motherboard = the most unbalanced thing ever

Why are you strapping a gold brick to a pile of hot steamin s***

Anyways,

A dual gpu card will run at 16x, and basicly each GPU utilizes 8x on the one 16x lane.
