Well, I'm using the top card and I dont really notice the difference between left or right. Anyone know if their is a difference?
I dont believe you're getting 10000 plus in 3d mark 06. Prove it.
Well, my board is not in upside down but it only works if I use the top card. I did manage to get aquamark and 3d mark 06 to run well. I only got 8161 in 3d mark 06. Is that a good score for SLI 7900 GTX cards??
Thanks Guys. What a pain SLI was to setup.
Plus if I plug the DVI into the bottom card, I have no video. I thought your supposed to use the bottom right DVI connector?? Help!
Thanks a lot Guys.
Also, WoW runs bad. Weird flashing colors etc.
I finally got sli working. Aquamark runs but there is a lot of weird video problems like flashing lights weird colors etc. 3d mark 05 runs great with a score of about 12000. 3d mark 06 has the same problem as aquamark. I did install the latest drivers, 84.43 from nvidia. I dont get it. Does anyone know whats up?? Is it because the cards are so new?? 7900 gtx's. Maybe I should use the driver remover program?? Whatever it's called...Driver cleaner maybe?
I'm re installing windows right now and that is working.....I suspect a driver problem. I just got my first 7900 gtx last week and SLI should work with those drivers. So, I dont get it.
yes the jumpers are right....windows does boot because i hear sound....no video....i think the drivers are 81.85.....whichever one came with my 1 st 7900 i got last week.
I installed sli today and windows start loading and I see the logo and it disappears and right before it supposed to get to the dektop my lcd monitor says analog and digital alternately but no video.
I have the latest nvidia drivers installed. Is their a bios setting set wrong. Help!

I just upgraded my vidcard from a cheap plain geforce 6600 to a EVGA 7900 GTX 512. MB. PciE and I OC'ed it. My 3d mark 06 score was 6600 or so. Quite nice, I think for 1 card.
I'm getting the second 7900 gtx tommorow...Woo Hoo!!
Good Luck Guys!
May the OC be with you!..
No, one PSu was sitting on top of the case. I just disconnected it anyway. I got scared after reading that your should not power one component with 2 psu's. I was powering the 7900's pcie power plug with the external antec and the rest of the stuff with the ocz internal. It was running really great like that. I just ran some benchies and switched it back to stock <7900>. It seemed like a good idea. Does anyone know if I can do this without frying stuff?? Maybe I could power all of the fans and the drives with an external psu and the mobo and 2 7900's in sli with the ocz???
I OC'ed my 7900 gtx to 705/880 and heres the benchies.
3D Mark 06---6647
Are those scores good for my system?? I've never had a nice video card until now.
Also, I'm running 2 PSU's. I have an Antec 500W Smartpower 2.0 running the card and my OCZ is running the rest. It's cool as hell. Totally Ghetto.
Does anyone know if I could run SLI 7900 GTX's with the Antec 500W and the rest on my OCZ???? I dont want to buy a new PSU to SLI. I would be running 1050W and a lot of AMPS with two. I wonder how much the cards draw from the board.
Using FRAPS , the benchmark said I was averaging in the 40's at 1600 x 1200 with everything on maximum. My 3d mark 06 score was 6647. Woo Hoo. I'm having a hard time justifing SLI 7900 GTX's. It rocks. I love FEAR on max.

My benchmark scores dropped in Aquamark 3 and 3d mark 06 after I OC'ed my EVGA 7900 gtx 512 mb. card. Whats up with that???? Also, during the CPU test it will either get 1 fps or 0. Should I set the affinity to run on 1 core or what? Why so low??? Sorry for being slightly off topic.
Also, does anyone know if I could run 2 of these cards in sli with my setup....Check my sig please....520W ocz powerstream

Thanks for your comments Guys!
Well, I got my card listed in the title yesterday and it's really nice. It does suck that evga doesn't offer any bundle at all. I've only played WoW and FEAR so far and they are quite awesome. I did notice a little choppiness in FEAR with all of the settings turned up on high and playing at 1600 x 1200 res. Nevertheless it's still killer. I did have a question about 3d mark 06. Even with this powerful setup some of the 3d mark stuff still runs kinda slow as far as framerates go. Is 3dmark just that stressful or should I go SLI? I really want to but it seems like a big overkill. It would be nice to have a second one of these cards. I'm also still wondering what is up with the shortage of 7800 and 7900 cards???? This was the ONLY 7900 in stock at Newegg.
Thanks for your opinions in the previous posts guys!!
I know ATI is a little better but Nvidia is still really nice.

So I guess I should have gotten the x1900xt?

Is it true that 1 7900 gtx can beat two 6800 gt's in sli?
I got them overnighted. Be here tommorow.

I did it. Bought the evga 7900 gtx 512 mb vid card and a killer samsung 20.1 inch 1600 x 1200 res. monitor. with a 5 ms. refresh. The question I have is will the difference really big a big one. I upgrading from an old 17 inch crt 1024 x 768 monitor and a single 6600 vid. card. I just want to know if it was worth spending 1000$ for 1 video card and 1 monitor. Also, does anyone have an opinion about the company EVGA. I've never really heard of them. I had to get the EVGA because it was the only 7900 series card available at Newegg Whats up with the 7900 shortage??

What do you guys think of a Evga 512MB 7900 GTX card? Is it overkill or is it a really nice card to own. I have the money Its like 539$ at newegg.

I found out what would happen...It wouldn't even boot to the Lanparty splash screen.
Would it be possible to run OCZ pc3200 plat. el rev 2 2x512 with OCZ pc4800 plat. elite tccd 2x512? Maybe just stock only? No OC. I understand that 4x512 requires 2T.
