Default Re: vid card

No. they would conflict. I havn't used SLI before but it would be logical the there would be a master slot and it would control the other video card so i don't think you could have both in and switch between drivers either.

no. Exept I dont know about crossfire, but it's not possible in SLI. And I don't think that there are many cards that can work in crossfire.

and do u mean this "can you like have two different vid cards and switch between them?" as in having them both attached to the mobo the same time? If so then no, but it should work if u do it so that u take one out and put another one in. There might be some problems if u do it like that, like with drivers and stuff.

I'd just stick to using 1 vid card for the moment.
