Noob question

Recommended Posts

I have this newb question to ask i never had a motherboard that i could put 2 video cards in and i still dont but i'm looking at the ASUS M3N-HT DELUXE and presently i have a BFG GTX-260 maxcore55 as a video card and i also have a small almost unused GT 220 could those be put together on the board and would that do any kind of a diffrence on the main one if i could ? :ph34r: ---> noob hiding :haha:

With SLI, you really need two identical cards (can be different brands or pre-overclocked)...

 

The GT220 is a weak card, it's ok as a HTPC card, but 3D is not its strength... you could use it as a PhysX card, to give you a boost in games that use PhysX hardware physics processing, but that's about it, unless you want to run more than 2 displays, then it would give you the 2 extra (iirc, even though the GT220 has 3 outputs, it can only display on 2 simultaneously)
