    AlexK Ooops i did it again!

    Hello OSNN.net :) I'm looking to buy two 9800GT cards and put 'em in SLi, but i saw a note on some site that the SLi PCI-Express ports must run at 16x in SLi mode. My current mobo's ports run in 8x mode. Anyone know what mobo in looking for? It's socket 775

    any that will take the 16X. When you look a that the mobo, the specs will tell you. A lot of the newer ones will work. Any 750; 780; 790. Some amd boards will also, but watch for the one that have on board video - They will be able to use hybrid sli, but, they will only use up to whatever speed is on the board itself, Ie; if the board has a 256 meg integrated video, you can only use a 256 meg video card for it.

    For the most part, just look at the specs of the board and it will tell you ...
