Question SLI with a EN9800GT Ultimate

I have an Asus EN9800GT Ultimate, and I want to connect another card to it. But this card seems to no longer be made. I was wondering if I MUST connect it with another identical card, or if there are other compatible cards. People have been telling me both and I am unable to find the truth. Also, if there are other compatible cards, how can I find out what they are?

Thank you.

Default Re: SLI with a EN9800GT Ultimate

If I remember correctly, you CAN go ahead and SLI two of the same TYPE of card as long as they are the same model. If one of them is clocked slightly lower, then your system will pick the lower clock speed and use that.


Edit: I did a little diggin' around and found this link for you:

http://www.overclock.net/graphics-ca...t-cards-2.html

It basically states that, like I said, you CAN SLI two of the same cards from different manufacturers. Read the article for a better idea of what I'm saying.

As long as you get another 9800GT based video card you will be fine. The brand of card does not matter as long as the GPUs match.

Yup, the Asus EN9800GT Ultimate is just an overclocked 9800GT. Grab another 9800GT and you're good to go.
