    Oh, you meant you don't have a PCI-E connector on your psu?

    Hybrid SLI will only work with a GeForce 8400GS and GeForce 8500GT. And even then, it doesn't offer much of a performance boost. If you do pair it with that card, the most it can do is save power by shutting off the add-in card and using the integrated graphics during low demand times. There are much better cards you can get for the money though: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121251

    Yes, but it comes with an adapter that turns 2 molex into 1 pci-e 6 pin connector.
