    Hi TPU

    Today i have installed a 3rd system:

    CPU: AMD x9750 2.4
    MB: K10N78FullHD-hSLI R3.0
    RAM: 8GB ---> 4 stick
    GPU: GTX275
    HDD: 500GB
    PSU: ZU-550W

    After looking around Asrock website I found that motherboard support NVIDIA GeForce8 Series

    I was wondering:
    1- Is that possible to make 2x GPU works together ( GTX275 + Ge-force 8 Series )that mean PCI-E and on-board GPU?
    2- Do you think that will improve FPS?


    also, i am not willing to open new thread but do you think i am good with that PSU, as I read GTX 275 need 40 amps?!



    Thank you very much
    god bless

    Not sure if you will get FPS boost, but with Hybrid SLI, I think you have to connect your monitor to onboard and when discrete is not in use it will turn it off. Will help in idle power consumption.

    I might be wrong, other experts might be able to better explain.

    Hybrid SLI was discontinued years ago. It only ever worked with a small number of nVIDIA cards, anyway.
