  1. Hi, I have a Asus P5LD2 (not deluxe) and i was wondering if i can use SLI with my Geforce 7600 GS on it. I think SLI is possible with my graphics card (7600 GS) but the question is will my motherboard support and work with SLI. Thanks

    from what i see onj all the site reviews and everything is nothing, but the deluxe version does and i dont know how differenct they are. My guess is yes but if i was you i would try to find the motherboard manual and try to find it there

    Each of these have Specs and it's details.
    Read their manuals or go to the websites and read their product specs.
    Do a search for SLI there.
    Why expect someone else to do it for you.
    BTW what is SLI ? I'll try to answer that for my components.

    Try again

    asus has a downloadable pdf Manual,try a little harder in downloads
    for your board.It also has downloads that would be on a cd.
    But what is
    "SLI"
    if you want a reply i have to know what it means.
    in 3 words.
    :suspiciou
    ===============
    Thats why i don't buy that kind.You need a manual and a cd.
    The asus cd has utilities to install after Window installs.
    The manual tells you witch omes and why.vga is a definite,internal or Plug and Play video card.
    I will not post the links for you.I'd have to be absolutely sure i knew what they where.I could cause you more problems this way.

    SLI is basically in your 3 words :D.. Just the Ability to link 2 graphics cards (GPUs) together and make them both run to give about 200% efficiency.

    I see Thanks

    I can't help you with this any further,except I know it can be done with
    the right Motherboard.So start at asus,they might have a different way of
    describeing this feature.
    Now i have to ask "What is (GPUs) ?
    Each of these are "3 words".eg: RAM = Random Access Memory.
    So i can check my asus P5K-VM Board features.
    It's a good late asus model that i think has this.

    Well GPU is graphics processing unit
    and SLI is Scalable Link Interface.

    Oh yeah and i found out i cant use SLI since i got only 1 PCI x16 slot =(

    ASUS' motherboards usually have an SLI somewhere in their name to indicate SLI support. Yours doesn't, so there's your answer.
    @Izzy2004, SLI doesn't give even near 200% efficiency.
