And yes my motherboard is a P6TSE
Thanks!

The SE board you have does not have an SLI license, so you cannot run dual NVIDIA cards. The SLI (The P6T) has a bios that will flash to the SE board, and make it operate as the full crossfire or SLI board. here is a thread on it:

Thats really interesting.

So this would be something to consider if I wanted to go out an buy 2 Nvdia graphics cards and run them in SLi?

Wouldnt buying a single GPU be better?

Its up to you. I just wanted you to be aware of the fact you can unlock your SE board to the Full P6T glory! It is reversable, and would only require you, once flashed to P6T bios, to disable a few bios features you do not have on your board (they were not soldered to the SE board).

I appreciate you letting me know, Im no computer expert so Im unsure why you would want to SLI 2X Nvidia graphics cards?

It was my understanding that if you buy 1 really good GPU your better off than buying 2 good cards and putting them together - you avoid any issues such as heat.

Would doing this to my P6TSE increase the performance of the card at all? Or is it purely just so I can run 2 X Nvdia cards?

Thanks again

Some have reported better OCing functions in the bios, but I don't really know. its been a while since i did it. Most people do it to run SLI. While I agree I would rather have a stronger single card than a 2 card setup, I actually have a dual GPU single card (almost the same thing as 2-card setup), which gives me some of the same issues... heat output, not all games scaling well with multi GPU, etc.

Why dont you look through that thread and see if people report performance gains?
