I think I seen another PCI-Express card that was not a graphic's card, I could be wrong.

It's confusing me too, I take it this is the one:

Somebody does mention in a review that it can be modded to be SLI.

The pic is right, that board has 2 pcie slots, but no SLI. They are there because it is the same board as the SLI ones, minus a small bit of solder that bridges some pins. If you want SLI, you can apply this yourself. Basically DFI gets to make one board from the same factory turn into two or three models based on demand.

Here's a link to the Ultra-D to SLI mod. You can also mod an Ultra to an Ultra-d or SLI.

The ultra-d is the exact same board as the sli board, only difference is some expoxy on one set of jumpers. If you are EXTREMELY careful, you can chip away expoxy and use a conductive pencil to re-connect 2 jumpers, and wha laaaa, you have a sli board. On log on. it reconizes it as the sli mobo, then all you need is the 20.00 bridge, and you have saved around 50.00....I like a few others have made this mod

Here is a pic of the mod on a plain old ultra. The black cirle is the sli mod, and the red ones are the ultra to ultra d mod. If you have an ultra, do all three. If you have an ultra d, do ONLY the black sli contacts.
