SLI video card / motherboard question

Posted on 2005-05-10
Last Modified: 2013-11-08
Hi, I have a client that wants a 64 bit (amd) system with two SLI video cards in it.  from what I have found so far, the only sli cards are PCI express, and I cant find any motherboards that support the amd 64 that also has two pci express slots.  of course all of this crap needs to have drivers for 64 bit windows.

I know this question is tough, probbially the toughest I have asked here, but any help is greatly appreciated, and If I could assign 5,000 points to this I would.

    Look for the nForce4 chipset and SLI designation:

    Asus A8N-SLI
    MSI K8N Neo4
    Gigabyte K8NXP-SLI

    You'll want an nForce4 chipset, as mensioned above (I saw plenty at from about $180-$220).

    Also, you will need to get two nvidia-chipset graphics cards (not ATI). Common ones are the 6600GT, the 6800, 6800GT, 6800 Ultra.
