Re: graphics card no display, not recognised
Hi DarkPredUK. You need to check you're bios. (See below). The PCI-E card (Single video card) must be placed into slot, PCIEX16_1 as shown on page 2-3 & 2-18 in you're user manual. The bios must be set correctly as seen on page 4-26 to PCI-E first. You must have two PCI-E cards installed to run SLI mode. (They must be exactly the same graphic cards). Asus M2N-E SLI main web site/drivers, manual ect. http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=M2N-E%20SLI&SLanguage=en-us
Good luck DarkPredUK. Need more info? Post it here or click the Ask Me.

Hi, The recommended PSU for your card is 550W. After you connect it to your motherboard you have to connect a (6pin) PCIE power connector to the card. Without it the video card will not display anything.
are they 2 different graphics cards? If so then no, you can use both but if you want SLI or ATI then you MUST have 2 of the same cards or cards that are compatible together.
To find out whats compatible go to the manufacter's website and there should be a section for SLI and a chart for compatibility when i was on Nvidia i know there was a chart for this but can't find a link. Sorry just use google to search for "compatible vga cards with XXXXXXX" should help or google a chart for this.
Have you accessed BIOS(startup and start tapping F2) to see if SLI and not PCIexpress is selected?
The best thing that I can recommend with any SLI or Crossfire setup is to install the cards seperately at first to make sure they are working by themselves. Then install the cards in SLI or Crossfire configuration.
Yes, the GeForce 8800GTX will work with your motherboard. And yes, it ought to make your video a bit snappier, too. Given what it sounds like you're doing, I'd go with the 8800GT, with 512mb of RAM. XFX makes one with that setup, and it should only set you back about a hundred bucks. Also bear in mind that insufficient system RAM will also slow down screen changes.
Being agp3.0, it is backwards compatible so in theory, it should work. With the older system, it may be dangerous. I would find a card that clearly states that it works in x8 (3.0) 1.5v. If it doesn't work it could fry the whole system. If i find a card that works, I'll let you know.
