Hi, iv'e been looking on the Internet for support to my Dual graphics cards, because my system pics the 2 up, but I don't see the performance boost in for instance my games. But I don't know really what to look for, a driver for my graphic card, motherboard or what?
I was hoping you could tell me what i have to do/download to ensure that my 2 graphic cards are correctly bridged for optimal performance in my system

The video bridge cable you are referring to is I believe "Flexible NVIDIA Video SLI Bridge Connector Cable".
This is to link two graphics cards together for enhanced graphic capability, especially gaming. You would need two SLI compatible graphics cards, they should be identical, in the relevant PCIe slots on the motherboard and this cable then links them together.
If you are only using one graphics card or the onboard graphics then this linking cable is redundant.The Youtube video here: Nvidia How To SLI Tutorial
is pretty good at showing what you need to do and where this cable goes when appropriate.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
v1.0 motherboard features the 945GC and ICH7 chipsets, supporting Intel
Core 2 Duo/ Pentium D processor up to 1066 MHZ FSB and GMA950 embedded.
-> With two PCI-E graphic cards, this board can support Scalable D.G.E.,
which produces supercharged 3D performance, and enables two bridged
PCI-E based graphic cards to work jointly.
-> Moreover, with enabled ->
onboard VGA and -> PCI Express add-on card, this board can perform Surround
Display which provides a panoramic view, along with an unique real-time
experience of surround game display."
Will support two PCI-Express x16 graphics cards. What isn't stated in that paragraph, is one graphics card will be supported at 16x, with the other being supported at 4x.
The Orange PCI-Express x16 slot supports a graphics card at the 16x bandwidth. (Hmmm, looks Red to me)
The Blue PCI-Express x16 slot supports a graphics card at the 4x bandwidth.
Was just bringing up the point, that the mobo will support OnBoard, or Integrated graphics, AND also one of those PCI-Express x16 slots.
Means BIOS will allocate an Interrupt Request for the OnBoard (Integrated) graphics, and also allocate an IRQ for the PCI-Express x16 graphics card, for using BOTH at the SAME TIME.
Never have seen this before. Must lead a sheltered life! Lol! No big deal, however. Two graphics cards are much better.
IF, your Power Supply does NOT have two 6-pin PCI Express power cables, AND you use an adapter power cable, that uses two 4-pin Peripheral power cables, MAKE SURE you use TWO -> 4-pin Peripheral power cables! <-
If not you will burn up the power cable's connector. You will burn up the power cable connector on the graphics card. You will burn the PCI Express x16 slot the graphics card is sitting in.
May not happen right away, but I Assure you it Will happen!
hi there, do tell if you don|t know - where the slot for the graphic adaptor is on that board or - you don t know who made the graphic card or - the board itself does not recognize the already inserted graphic card
please give more details!
whew, look in BIOS or download pcwizard2008 to tell you more about your system,
think it has somethign to to with the compability, example windows xp cant have directx 10 only 9 and lower even tho the graphics card is direct x10 compatible. i dont know much about windows 98 but i am pretty sure thats the problem
