Asus P67 Pro GTX 470 sli with 9800 GT running in the x4 slot (is it possible)?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just grabbed a 470 off the FS section and I was thinking about running the gtx 470s in SLI with the 9800 GT running in the x4 slot folding at least and perhaps later upgrading to a higher end phsyx card...

Would that work? Currently it works fine as far as I can tell. My gtx 470 is running @ x16 and my 9800 GT is running @ x4.


If it will, would tri sli ever be possible then @ x8x8x4??

I don't think there would be any issue running Tri-SLI at x8x8x4.

I'm going to be getting another 570 shortly and i'm expecting something along those lines.

Also on a side note, a 9800GT as physx isn't going to be awesome tbh. have a look at the graph I attached.

It's respectable when overclocked to around 820 core 1946 shader at least with a single gtx 470 but I'd agree that with two gtx 470's it's probably going to be slower wouldn't it?

You can 2ways-SLI + a PhysX on 8x8x + 4x
but I'm not sure about 3ways-SLI on 8x8x4x lanes

There is around a 3% drop going from x16 - x8. I'd expect a more significant loss of power on a x4 port.

Should I go off this http://www.hardocp.com/article/2010/...x16x16_vs_x4x4 and just assume the performance hit would be negligible vs the gain of an extra card?


(Assuming x8x8 sli vs x8x8x4 tri sli *or sli /w 2xx or 450 phsyx card vs just sli* vs the cost of a high end NF200 board)
