ok a friedn of mine is looking @ a new build / upgrade.
basicly he has a core2 at the moment think its a e6300 and an ATI something graphics card cant remember exactly,
badicly he wants to slowly upgrade his computer and then with the old parts eventually have 2 computers,
hes starting with a new graphics card / cards,
hes buying this motherboard
and this graphics card, http://www.maplin.co.uk/module.aspx?...23831&doy=11m7
not a month or so down the line hes going to buy another 1 of those graphics cards and a Q6600.
basicly im asking for any advice at all on SLI,
i no u say dont buy 2 8600 buy an 8800 for like £30 more but the thing we are doing with his machine requires graphics card memory like no other. trust me its "something" multiple times and with a 256 card he can do it 5 X with a 512 card he can do it 8 X basicly the more RAM the graphics card has the btter for him,
no my first question if he SLI's these cards is it like he has 2Gb RAM on graphics ? or is it better to not SLI them ? and have 2 monitors ?? and will i have 2Gb graphics RAM then ?
another question if i do SLI what do i need i have absolutely no idea about SLI at all, do i need to hard link the cards together ??? with a cable or something ?? or is it all software ?? i have no idea at all,
