A8N32 SLI Delux Problem - Page 2

post #11 of 26
The asus has two "true" 16x PCI-E slots on the A8N32. All other boards (except the new MSI) use a shared 16x (which mean two 8x lanes).

Dude, your link is showing 4 cards? Also, they are all only single height cards from what I can see. your first link doesn't show anything. If the second pic is accurate you will be fine. Single height cooling will give you 3 free slots. The io shields on the cards in the pic is also single slot.

I just looked at the title of the link from legit reviews. You're kidding right? Quad SLI. the only system on the planet the "supposedly" has these is a the dell showcase system. They aren't even on the market yet. The only dual 7800 series cards that are available are the Asus 7800GT duals (I think MSI has one as well).

Incidently, are you planning on robbing a bank to pay for them?

The 7800GT duals do need two slots and from your "pic" it looks like the gtx duals will be the same. The MSI board is layed out a bit differently but is inferior in quality to the asus.

Do the DFI's even support "quad SLI" cards? Really, if you are building a wish list thats fine but why don't you start with a budget and build from there? I have plenty of disposable income but I would be very hard pressed to spend 6 or 7 grand on a tower that would need to be upgraded in a year or two. You could build a really decent tower forunder $2500 US without trying to figure out if the quad sli cards that probably won't hit the market until the end of the year are going to work with a specific motherboard.

good point, and income is an issue anyway lol, imm working on it, basicaly I have an old etower 600 so Im going to build one that can do all the gaming and such, shure now one realy needs that much gpu power anyway but i dont want to have to upgrade if i dont have to so if its nt top of the line in two years, no big deal lol, it should still be enough, by the time ii get the cooling they will have new mobos anyway lol,

things are moving kind of slow, but i turn 16 on the 26 so im going to get a job lol,

thanks for the advice

edit: forgot to mention, I just ordered an Acer t135 to tide me over lol *rolls eyes* so is not a rushed project, phase change is expensive but if i overclock the cpu it should be able to keep up for awile
