Plus you can mod it to SLI.. so
Actually, I'm pretty sure the Ultra-D can no longer be modded to SLI. They made revisions quite some time ago to their boards that prevented it.

Actualy in terms of performance the SLI-DR is the best.
It's pointless getting the SLI-DR if you dont have SLI or never plan on getting SLI. You're just paying extra money for something you don't need.

I heard that they have always been protected against the modding by putting the little epoxy over the contacts. This was their revision against people modding it. Im not sure if this is true though.

well if it was only something like epoxy covering them, then it'd still be possible, however I know it hasn't always been like that since day one.

there's the guide on how to do it. Theres nothing covering the contacts and this was back in the early days of the Ultra-d

Well, the best lanparty, is the SLI-DR Venus, but the best value is the Ultra-D

This is the guide form dfi-street. They talk about removing the epoxy from the contacts and people are still doing this up too today. I think that the Ultra-d are still moddable but i wont be 100% sure until i do mine.
