    so i was looking inside my computer today and i noticed my graphic card, a Geforce 7950 GX2, and it was sitting in one slot as lonely as could be.. and i thought to myself... what if i had 2!

    Ok to get to the point, my mother board is an ASUS P5N32-SLI SE Deluxe Gaming Motherboard.

    1.) Can 2 Geforce 7950 GX2's fit inside it?

    2.) Is there anything special I'd have to do to get my computer to run 2 GX2's in it... bios updates? driver issues? that jazz..

    thanks guys! Lemme know your thoughts

    space wise they should fit, you wont be able to put any other cards in like a sound card if you choose to do that later. i had dual 8800gts's in a antec 900 case on a similar motherboard. fitted in but very tight.

    yea thats the case i have right now actually, i love it. so it'll fit most likely... does anyone have any information on if the "Quad SLI" will actually work? i'm very intrigued about this and am wondering how much better it will make my gaming. thanks for that lil bit of info ghost26

    You cannot, at least not in Windows Vista. The Forceware unified driver doesn't allow SLI of two 7950 GX2 in Windows Vista. This is a known issue.
