Dual graphics bridging

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

I'll need to know the motherboard model number & it's revision (IF any), the graphics card's model number's you're using & operating system.

How and where do you install nvidia video bridge cable asus 14010-00131200.


Hi
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
Cheers

Is it possible to dual video card in ECS 945gct-m (v1.0)?


http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?DetailID=727&CategoryID=1&MenuID=16&LanID=0

Let's read together,

" 945GCT-M 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.

"Surround Display"

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!

4-pin Peripheral power cable,

6-pin PCI Express power cable, and shows adapter power cable I am referring to,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

The Yellow wires are 12 Volt wires. (DC)
Need two for every graphics card.

Do I know if they will both physically fit? No.
You have the motherboard, and the two graphics cards, though.

    Will a dell dimension 2100 support dual monitors


    Yes it will but that will also depend on your graphics card to a degree.
    To do it properly you need to install a new graphics card and disable the on-board graphics card from the bios.

    Your new card should support std VGA as well as DVI

    DVI is also capable of being hooked up to many large screen tvs
