Yeah you can't have SLi on PCIe unless you have AGPe which is an AGP interface bridged off a PCIe interface and it si performance killing!

Er...one of the 6800's goes in the AGP slot and bridged off of this is the PCI-EX slot card, that is what I have seen.

ok Nvidia, don't know why you'd say

as there's no SLI technology for AGP....so why would he need two?

Beyond that, PCI-E and PCI-X are two different things.

So this

Wasn't needed and technically is wrong info, besides saying DUH to people is insulting, especially if you're giving them wrong info then it really looks bad.

What mega said was that you'd have to have AGP-E, AGP-Express, which he is saying is bridged off the PCI-E Interface, but of course being that they aren't the same busses it'll kill the performance compared to two PCI-E Cards.

Here's a link on the difference between PCI-E and PCI-X incase someone wanted to know:

BTW: To answer your question Yan, go with eVGA, they are a very good quality brand card, whereas I've heard other about XFX, but as I have no experience with them I really can't say, but all I do know is it seems like eVGA really works hard into making a quality card, and I've never heard a complaint about them. So I suggest them
