If the lack of NF4 in the name, and the fact that there was an Intel chipset in the name didn't hint at anything swifty... <_<.

 

But yes, it's for multiple displays.

 

dean: No, you can't, not without two cursors and two areas for input. Both KBs and mice will be read as one. I run a dual keyboard setup (can't stand this Microsoft wireless one though), and have tried two mice one day when bored.

That would be cool but not really possable. Require a lot of system recources.

KB is right, you cannot run SLI on a 945 chipset. The extra 16X slot (wired for 1X/2X/4X bandwidth electrically) is only there mainly if you want to run a secnd video card for extra displays, or another PCI-Express device.

 

A little off topic, but the upcoming 975X chipset (with 2 physical 16X slots) will support ATI's crossfire technology, but it will not support Nvidia's SLI technology.

the reason for 2 PCI_E slots is quite simple.... DXG (Direct Xtreme Grafics) is what its called its called by nVidia on the DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D mobo... its kinda crappy... course that being nF4 Ultra chipset it can be modded. but basically its so u can use 2x 16x PCI-E cards at 8x/8x or 16x/2x its basically allowing you to run quadvision. when you buy a mobo and its got 2 PCI-E slots my recommendation is to see if its SLi, DXG, or Crossfireand dont get a DXG board
