Agreed, I had all sorts of stupid little problems with my SLI setup. The biggest problem was LESS fps in game with SLI enabled than disabled... so retarded.

I'f you've already got 2 cards, sell one of em and spend the money on something more worthwhile. Or sell both cards and get an X1950XTX

Agreed. Thing is, I paid £115 for each card. Postage ended up being £30. With no retail box, drivers (fair enough, these are available on EVGA) cables, the average person on say ebay won't buy. Or will they?

If I can get my money back i'll sell!!! Do you think ebay is the place to sell? If not, where?

Think i'll defo sell one for now so i can get the p5b an get OC'in. I like the idea of a water cooled e6600 pushing 4ghz with a 7900gtx...

Another thing was just go with the n590, be content with 3ghz and have fully supported x16 sli - blistering gfx performance!

Seriously you'd be better off getting an X1900XT than a 7900GTX

ATI cards have far superior IQ at the moment

the x1900xtx is £300... You reckon my EVGA's will see for £150 each? Ebay and set a £150 reserve? Or sell as a pair? £300?

I have something against ATI, don't know why. Think its because im getting a c2d and since amd bought ati, intel nvidia just seems logical...

WAAAAAAY off topic, but this review and this one amongst others convinced me into buying the EVGA's and SLi etc etc

LOL ok, so i'm clutching at straws here...

How is one £200 x1900xt card better than 2 £275 7900gt's? (Price from Scan)

More randomness, other than lower OC's is there anything wrong with the n590, or even nforce4?

EDIT: I am getting desperate lol

Mate tbh if your not going to listen and faff around asking loads of stupid questions then I cba with answerring them

I've told you why a single card is better than dual cards and I've told you why I prefer the X19XX series to nVidia. I've also advised which mobo is best, and even which one supports (unofficially) SLI on Intel and is a half decent overclocker.

If you want SLI then go SLI but good luck finding a decent mobo that officially supports SLI

What more do you want??
