Sli confusion

  1. i was wondering that if you have 2 7900gt's which one would you use to connect to your LCD?

    is there a special type of cable wire that will connect both of them rather then one?

    It's normally the card in the slot closest to the CPU.

    if your board is a retail board, then you should call the manufacter and request that they send you one, otherwise i dont believe you can buy them because for each model of motherboard the pci 16x slots are different lengths away....
