good choice

Recommended Posts

i have just sold my two 7800 gtx's as i could not get them to run in sli ( i tried about 100 different things to make it work with no success, anyway i have just purchassed a new Sapphire Radeon X1950 PRO 512MB PCI-Express GDDR3 DVI gpu ........

1st.. is this a good choice

2nd.. my pc will not boot up at all when the E.Z selector switch is in single videa card mode, i get lots of beeps and a voice message saying vga not recognised...when i switch to dual card mode it works fine but with it being only x8 pci-e will it affect any performance ???

im now using a ASUS A8N SLI DELUX

No, there should be no performance loss when running it at x8. Most cards don't take advantage of all that PCIe has got...

Higher end Nvidia cards will suffer from only being able to use 8x bandwidth. But from what I have seen/tried/heard, ATI cards will not suffer at all.

 

Have you tried using each slot separately with SLI disengaged on your mobo? Try the other slot and see if it will post.
