Correct. You need two SLI compatible video cards with the same GPU such as two 8800GTs.

SLI compatible memory is just a marketing gimmick. You can use any memory that is compatible with the motherboard.


The Apevia 680W should be just fine. You need at least a 500W PSU for most SLI setups.

ok thats good . so all you need now is a second video card.

you might want to buy one abit later down the track if newer games like farcry 2 need better videocards you could just slip in a second one. to get better fps
