Scratch that i only have a SLI mobo. If i have only a SLI mobo why do i have CrossFire multi GPU ribbon? I have an MSI Eclipse Gaming series X58 mobo.

my guess is that because you have an Intel chipset, you have a Crossfire enabled board...

it's a pretty strong guess btw...

All X58 boards support CF, a few support SLi.

Wow! The MSI Eclipse X58 supports both 3 way SLI and Crossfire. I never heard of such a board capable of running both.
