You cannot do SLi on P45 boards.

You can still use 2 nvidia cards, just not in SLi. For example, I am using an 8800 GTS for graphics and a 9500 GT for PhysX. You could also use 2 cards for folding.

Nope you can use one for physx and one for graphics like Gir said, works wonders if you have a old card laying around.

Hey guys i have a similar setup, i have an Ep45T-DS3R w/ e8400 oc'd to 3.8ghz, 2gb cheap ocz ddr3 reaper memory, and an nVidia GTX260. I recently bought a pc case from a guy on ebay he listed the auction wrong and was actually selling a bunch of parts including a nice 600watt name brand supply (i forgot the name) a bunch of 120mm fans and nVidia 8400 card.

So two questions: is there anyway (especially with this new licensing problem nvidia is having) will SLI be possible on our EP45 equipped boards? Or maybe mod-able by someone? ive heard it done with other intel chipsets. And does anyone here know if my 8400 will work next to my gtx 260 doing physx?

The board isn't licensed for SLI, so you can put two cards in, but I think you can only do PhysX on the second card. (Or more monitors, I suppose.)

I put two cards on my board and was able to fold on both of them.

a few intel chipsets have in the past been modified i think through modifying bios updates that allowed SLI to work on them.

No, but you sure can CAPS LOCK.
