It does not support SLI, but there is an easy mod to make it work with SLI. I do not know exactly how to do it, but I'm sure somebody else will.

Why? Theres no point in getting 2 7800GTXs...

Just Google it, see if anything comes up. Something about connecting two resistor pads on the chipset with the graphite in a pencil or some shizzazzab like that.

Thats what you get for not looking before you jump.

Settle down, friend . It's very easy. http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10736 Step by step guide to the SIMPLE mod. and a SLI bridge should not cost $74. More like $20 I would imagine.

Aw man Duplicity, you got the link before i did.

Supposedly, the new DFI Ultra-d have something built in so that you cant mod them to SLI any more. I am not complety sure about this but since you seem to have some money (sig) try it anyways.

No, actually every board is modable, the way they tried to stop it was covering the 2 points that you are suposed to connect, with some epxoy. It just takes longer to mod because you have to scrape the epoxy off, but it is still moddable to SLI.
