Default Re: SLI questions and stuff

It's recommended to have at least a 750W for a GTX 260 SLI setup. PC Power & Cooling makes one of the best power supplies available. Since you already have a GTX 260, if you can get another at a good price, it would be worth the upgrade. They scale very nicely in SLI.

Have you looked at EVGA's Step-Up program to see if you can get a more powerful card such as the GTX 285?

here's a link to most everything you need to know about SLI: SLI Zone

Nothing to be sorry about. That's what were here for. It's good to get all the information you can before making a purchase.

Your GA-MA790GP-UD4H does not support SLI. That's an AMD chipset based board and only supports ATI Crossfire operation. You would need an Nvidia chipset based motherboard for SLI.


You would need something like this: ASUS M4N82 Deluxe

Yup, that PSU should be plenty. The Corsair power supplies are quality units.
