780i with two 8800GTX's in SLI mode. What bridge and setup do I use?

I have the EVGA 780i 3 way sli mobo. I just put two 8800GTX 768mb cards in it. But the only sli bridge that will fit is the 3 way bridge. Do I a: move the second card down to the no. 3 card spot which is empty and use the 2 way connector. Or b: use the 3 way connector which fits and let the extra connection on the brige just hang there. Will it work that way? I need help on this. This is the only thing keeping me from turning my new PC on.

It should work if you leave the 3-way on with 1 dangling. You won't fry your PC if it doesn't work, so no worries on that. Try it. Let us know!

Have a NVIDIA nForce 780i SLI ATX mothrboard.Does it support gddr5 graphics card


Yes, vipinpabraha.

In fact if they come out with GDDR10, it will support that also.

Why?
Because a graphics card's graphics memory, runs independent of the system resources.

Would not matter if your motherboard used DDR Sdram, and the graphics card uses GDDR5.

(Yes, I know. The Nvidia NForce 780i SLI mobo uses DDR2 Sdram at 800MegaHertz. Or also stated as PC2-6400. Always wanted one of those motherboards)

Integrated graphics, or also known as OnBoard graphics, borrows from the System Resources. The Processor and Ram Memory.
(OnBoard - ON the motherBOARD )

This slows the computer down when using an intensive graphics program, such as an intensive game, for example

A graphics card has it's own Processor (G.P.U.), and graphics ram memory. It doesn't need to borrow from the system resources.

No beep,No Display on my monitor,only CPU heatsink fan is moving


You motherboard has onboard video. It's possible it needs to be disabled and the option changed to use the pci or pci-express slot for the Ati card you installed. Since you have no post error beeps this is the best place to start. Also I had built a system not to long ago and had a similar problem. Resetting the cmos on the motherboard (usually a pin combo) solved the issue.

Start by hooking up your vga cable to the onboard video.

Hope this helps.

Can I run two EVGA GeForce 260 GTS cards in crossfire on an ASUS Rampage MOBO?


This is an excellent question, basically "Can you run two Nvidia cards on a cross fire motherboard in a SLI configuration". My first thought was "No" but you should be able to still run a single Nvidia card.

From everything that I have collected the above is correct. Here is a reputable site that you can trust which has a spill on whether you can do this: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/246903-33-nvidia-graphics-card-crossfire-motherboard

Running dual bfg 8800gtx oc2


Hey, I own the same board, well the brother model, M2N-SLI and on both boards its the same, X8 when two cards are used, 16 when only one card is used, I have 8600GT two of them, previously used in sli, but now with 3 monitors I don't use sli at all, I still think both cards are working at x8 even if sli isn't enabled.

No video


could be that the drivers are not correct for the monitor/videocard that you have set up. have you tried downloading some newer ones from your monitors manufacturer?
