I was not aware of that little fact, they are the same.
Just checked the prices, they are pretty low too.

I do not game as much lately either. I went with the 9800 GT because its is a powerful card for the money AND it only takes up one slot.
The new ones I just purchased benchmark a little lower singly than my previous card (EVGA 9800 GT) but when I SLI them all that should change. Just waiting for the SLI bridge to arrive.

Though I would probably need a new PS for two of those.

Do you have any idea if it is possible to run 9800 GTX+ and 8800 GTS 512 MB in SLI? They do have the same amount of shaders (128) and the only difference is the size of the die , here being shorter for the 9800GTX +?

Hi, I stumbled upon this thread after buying a Phenom II 965 for my M2N32 SLI Deluxe to find that it wasn't supported, and then to find out about the NV tools to fix it. So a big thanks to this thread for that.
It's pretty disappointing that Asus didn't help us out with this one as as you will all agree it's still a great board.

Anyway, the main reason of my post was that I noticed people on here advising others that if they have an ATI card not to buy the 965 as it won't work. Well I am using an ATI 5850 without any problems at all so wondered where this had come from?

I haven't decided whether I'm going to keep the old faithful board yet or just give it up as old and get an GA-MA785G-UD3H as they're a reasonable price and support AM2, AM2+ and AM3 plus DDR2 & 3 ram.

decisions decisions, or should I say money money money..

What do you reckon are the chances of a modded bios turning up any time soon?

No, you can not.
Some have been able to get a 250 and GTX+ to SLI though.

post #5488 of 12343
well...i tried a new PSU with my 4870+M2N-SLI but i still keep getting the same crashes...now i have to go return it...i tried catalyst 9.2 thru 10.3 and nothing. and no response from HIS after a few days. should I RMA the board for a direct replacement or try to get a 5770 to work? i see some people got the 5000s to work with the deluxes, will they work on the regular m2n-sli?

Welcome friend!
I have had this board (m2n32 Vista Edition) since 2007. Over the same period of time I have also owned 790FX Mobo from MSI with Phenom Quad Core inside. The performance difference was almost not noticeable. Still, if you get newer board capable of producing faster buss speeds with new CPU's it will probably give you a slight advantage. But in the long run, even with the present speeds of 590 chipset, you are bound to have a good level of overall performance in a variety of tasks. But the choice is always yours:-)
Best regards!
