This is the best 3DMARK 06 score that I can get, you'd think that I could do better with a X1900XTX 512 Mb. card.<img src="/images/smilies/confused.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Confused" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
<br />
That is one of the unfortunate things about the P5B deluxe, I didn't realize it until after I had purchased it either, (that fact that it doesn't support SLI.)<img src="/images/smilies/gunner2.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Gunner2" class="inlineimg" />

</div>It does not officially support Sli <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" /><br />
But it will run sli with modded sli drivers.

From what I have read one slot is good for 16X, and the other is only good for 2 or 4X.

</div>They split 8x by 8x...<br />

At least I am assuming so because I see close to the same scores as I did with the P5W Deluxe <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" /><br />
Dont always believe what you read...try it for yourself and break ground. You will find the internet filled with misinformation so I for one tend to prove it for myself which unfortunately has cost me many a fried mobo LoL...but in this case your fine.

So, if I purchase another ATI X1900XTX 512 Mb. card I can use it in SLI mode on my board and see drastic improvements?

SLI is Nvidia's dual card system, Crossfire is how ATI cards link up.....both are similar in that they use 2 cards to share the work and a bridge links the two. Nvidia uses a bridge inside the case from card to card.....ATI currently uses a link cable externally on the back, however I heard that the new ATI cards may go to an internal bridge. There are a few minor deifferences as they are from different companies....<br />
<br />
However, with the 6.9 drivers the P5B Deluxe is supposed to be able to run Crossfire as well.......though I haven't tried it.

I just found this also:<br />
<br />
This is quoted from my MO BO owners manual.<br />
<br />
1. Primary PCI Express x16 slot.<br />
<br />
2. Universal PCI-E slot (max. x4 mode)<br />
This motherboard also supports a Universal PCI-E slt with a maximum speed of 2 GB/s. The operating frequency of this slot changes, depending on the type of PCI Express card you install.<br />
<br />
OPTIONS:<br />
<br />
Auto: automatically optimizes performance according to devices installed.<br />
<br />
x4 mode (fast): User gets the best performance but this mode disables the PCI Express x1 slot.<br />
<br />
x2 mode (compatible) Always runs PCI Express x2 speed.

Update your BIOS to 0706 if you haven't already, and be sure you set the second PCIe slot to 4x in the BIOS. That should work. Also, it might not display the option to go Crossfire unless you actually have a second card plugged in IIRC.....
