Default SLI With One Card


If I get a motherboard with SLI capabilities and a PSU with SLI capabilities, but yet I do not have money for 2 cards at the moment, so if I get one card now will I see bad performance if I am not using two cards on an SLI motherboard. I thought I read somewhere that if you only have one card in an SLI motherboard you will see bad performance. I don't know if that is true so I am making sure on this forum.

think of it as a cushion.

If ever did want to go SLI, you got the Power for it, and the mobo to handle it

But you wont see a performance decrease without having SLI
