The new 460 arrived today and after an uneventful install, including update to the 280 drivers, I now have a working SLI system.

I found it interesting that the default state of SLI is disabled when new drivers are installed. Not sure why that makes sense.

I reprofiled WEI and the number is now up to 7.8. This is without any OCing on the GPUs. The previous number was 7.4.

I'm going to try a few games to see what happens on settings detect.

Thanks to the "club" for all your help and support.

Some games that have PhysX can benefit from having a 3rd dedicated PhysX card while others don't really even require the use of SLi ... Now for me it is more of a luxory to have it and to be able to use 3x GTX 460's plus the native 780a Chip'd GPU on the boar for Folding. When I was running my Destroyer at my primary rig I had 4 GPU's plus the native GPU onboard for F@H... I soon realized that I did not need to have 4 expantion cards in the system if I wanted to conserve energy in addition to keeping my over all system heat under control

I have not gamed or folder on my main rig for a while now over 30 days as I have been way too busy getting all moved in @ my new home.

I'll be more than happy to run some benchmark test's for you if you are interested in seeing the results w/and w/o the PhysX card enabled

It is good to hear that you finally got a working SLI setup!

Don't be shy: Please post a few benchmark results. :-)
I highly recommend the Unigine Heaven benchmark. It it is a 100% 3D benchmark, so unlike the Futuremark benchmarks you don't need a highly overclocked intel CPU to achieve good results.

Thanks. And yes, I will do something in the benchmarking area. I don't know how many people are running their 965 with GTX 460 in SLI. This is mostly so so I get a sense if I'm in the ballpark. Right now I'm on business travel so it will have to wait for weekend.

I have a 965 which I'll be testing with two 460s SLI (on several different boards), along
with a whole bunch of other CPUs and GPUs. Stay tuned. 8) If this coming winter
where I am is anything like as bad as it was last year, I'll have time to do lots of tests
when the UK transport system grinds to a halt again.

Sure, benchmarks are always good to read.

The next part of the equation thoughi see is that you throw so much horsepower at the hardware at an application such as a PC, but there aren't any software applications atm to take advantage of it. I don't know if that is the situation in your case or not. This is new territory for me.

For instance, with what I have now I can max out Metro 2033. Maybe that's not going to be the case if I try to drive a higher resolution display, and in fact I do intend to try running the system connected to a 1080p display to see what's what.

The performance situation changes drastically once the resolution is HD or higher, with
high detail, AA, AF, etc. Depends on the game & the card(s), but in some scenarios cards
at the 460 level just aren't quick enough, even in SLI. RAM capacity comes into play,
especially at 2K res or higher. 2560x1600 is a common high-end gaming res, though I
use 2048x1536 for high-res testing purposes since that's the highest res I can use atm
via an HP 22" P1130 CRT.

Looking for a little assistance. I have the M2N SLI Deluxe. I am looking for a CPU memory upgrade. Of all of the CPUs listed as supported, I have only been able to locate the

AMD Phenom II X4 945 Deneb 3.0GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor HDX945WFGMBOX

Does anyone know if this CPU will work with my board.

The most important thing to remember, is that I run Linux for most of my puter needs, I only use Windows XP 64 for gaming, so using NForce tools in Linux is not an option I am aware of.

If anyone knows of other AM2+ or AM3 CPUs that will work with this MB, and most importantly, that are available for purchase at a reputable Etailer, I would appreciate the help and assistance. Thanks.

BTW, if the info here is always compatible between the M2N32 SLI and the M2N SLI Deluxe, I just wasnt sure that they are 100% compatible.
