Asus 460 & 560 in SLI?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Is it possible to run my current Asus GTX460 in sli with the new Asus GTX560Ti?
will the 460 bottleneck it? or what thanks,

You can't SLI different cards so that combo wouldn't work... Altough you could use 560 as primary and 460 as PhysX dedicated card but there won't be any improvement outside of GPU PhysX supported games

SLI 460 would deffinately outperform a single 560 and you can SLI on most mobos now using the SLI hack...

"There’s a PCI-E 2.0 and a PCI-e (PCI-express). There are 2 PCI-e slots and 1 PCI-E 2.0 Slot. PCI-e type is 16x/1x and PCI slots 3."

Is there another slot on my motherboard to fit 2 460's? or not frown.gif

EDIT: just realised, my board can't run 2 cards :'(

Without physical modding of either the 460 or the motherboard, you couldn't run a second GPU in that board, and even if you did, it would be on an x1 slot which would be a major bottleneck (somewhat mitigated by the SLi link)

Looking at the picture I wouldnt reccomend trying to SLI on this board, because the second card would only be running at 1x speed (after modding the slot) and that means quite some performnce loss....

Seems like new board is in order if you want to SLI or just sell your 460 and add some money for a faster card

If you have to buy a new board to SLI (apparently you do) then it's much more cost effective to sell off the 460 and upgrade to a stronger single card.
