Default Re: PCI Express x16 vs AGP

As far as I know there is only 16x16 cards for special computers not for desktops... If there is, that sounds interesting... Id like to see the performance.

Hi,

Dont know if this helps but you may have noticed SLI graphics cards. These are cards thjat are PCI-X but have the ability to be linked together, giving more graphics processing power!

Obviously you need a SLI compatible motherboard.

I got mine from http://www.akcom.net
or try this exact link

Not bad for £135 pounds!

Ta.

I can't stress this enough. PCI-X is completely different from PCI-E. Please don't get the two mixed up, it hurts my eyes to see the abbreviations used incorrectly.

Plus, I think all PCI-e cards are SLI ready anyways.
