I have no idea what you're asking.

Unless you are modding it, then you're stuck.



You do....that's the point.

You can mod it into one (By connecting two traces, it makes it LITERALLY into an SLI chipset) but other than that, it's not the same one...and you can't do SLI on it.

and um... the board??? Does come with the SLI bridge.

it would be the little part in the bottom right corner that says "SLI bridge"

There were versions of that MB that was capable of modding to do sli... as far as the later ones being modable, not a clue for sure. Nvidia had a fit that the chips were getting modded and they were loosing money over it.
