  1. Hi!

    This motherboard doesn't support the SLI,only AMD® Quad-GPU CrossFireX™ technology.If you want SLI you'll need to buy mobo that has AMD 990X/990FX chipset.

  3. Thank you really mush that was a good advice!
  4. i have the same motherboard, why wouldnt it support SLI? a gpu can run in a 4x pcie 2.0
  5. Just look the specs here: https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/M5A97_R20/#specifications

    The 16x-4x CF doesn't give enough performance because it's bandwidth (the 4x slot) isn't enough for a video card like as GTX 650Ti Boost.

    the 2nd card (4x) loses 3-7% of the performance

    and one of the cards is gtx 570 which is alot faster than 650 ti

    also 6970 CF tested with 16x/4x speeds and the loss is 7%, which in real world is around 5 fps

    Ok,but the AMD 970 chipsets only support CrossFire :/ For SLI you'll need a mobo with AMD 990X/990FX chipset
