post #1141 of 6478
can someone recommend me a TRI -SLI board? I currently have ROG HERO and thought about switching to ROG Maximus , but apparently its for TRI CROSSFIRE.
I'm looking for high quality board for my main rig.

Well if anyone could at least answer me this, that would be greatley appreciated. Are two 780s and a 290 or 290x considered to be a profitable in the mining world?

How would a 290/x work in my system? There is space but the primary card is a 780. A bit of research tends to point out it working for mining but wouldn't the dual drivers make things funky?

If you are mining the board does not have to be SLI compatible.

its for my main rig so Ill be also gaming and doing work on that computer.
I already have 2 780s and wanted to add third one for mining, I know I can use the 1.0 slot, but why spend $450 on a GPU and not get any benefits for gaming

Honestly you wont see any advantage to adding a 3rd card in x16 slot for gaming. 2 way SLI is by far the best optimized.

yes it can work you would just have to make sure the drivers work well together.

My only funky issues come when I try to span Surround/Eyefinity on different resolution monitors. laugher.gif

But first: spanning multi-display setup is not very common
And second: spanning a virtual desktop with different monitors is quite uncommon.
