    I have a 9800 GX2 and am just wondering what video cards work with it. I know some boards support quad SLI with two GX2's, can any other cards work with a GX2 in tri-SLI?

    as you said 9800GX2 support quad sli. take a look for the cards that supports tri-sli in this list. Those are marked with 1 star

    just another GX2 for quad unfortunately.

    "In an SLI configuration, cards can be of mixed manufacturers, card model names, BIOS revisions or clock speeds. However, they must be of the same GPU series (e.g. 8600, 8800) and GPU model name (e.g. GT, GTS, GTX) [16]. There are rare exceptions for "mixed SLI" configurations on some cards that only have a matching core codename (e.g. G70, G73, G80, etc), but this is otherwise not possible."

    possible maybe thru some awesome driver mods? Solaris? :)

    EDIT: wait maybe a 9800GTX with the 9800GX2?

    i assumed Quad SLI necceseraly meant tri-sli backward compatible :confused:
     
  5. Take a 8800gts 512(G92) and connect it to the 9800GX2.
