I am running 2 x MSI 9800GTX's on a Asus P5N-T Deluxe and would like to add one more GPU. My supplier is unable to supply a 9800GTX and can only supply a MSI 9800GTX+. Will this run with the other two???

*********** board has an Integrated Intel GMA X4500 graphics, maximum shared memory of 1G, it should be automatically disabled if the pcie slot detects a video card but some mother board embedded gpu runs with the pcie card unless disabled in the bios.
Do you have plans on running a SLI (Scalable Link Interface) linking two or more gpu to produce a single output on *********** board. why SLI? because you already hae a GTS 450 GPU but you cant do this configuration because *********** board has a single pcie slot.
If you have plans on running a pci gpu with your GTS 450 it should, but if you encounter any problem try manually assigning IRQ's and resources through the BIOS? I don't have this specific
Hopefully this information helps.
Thanks you for using FixYa.
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.
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.
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.
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).

Good luck DarkPredUK. Need more info? Post it here or click the Ask Me.
What's the specs on your power supply. For SLI you need a good quality 500W+ PSU with lots of current on the 12V rails. Remember that all the drives, memory, fans, cpu, etc will use a lot of power, if there is not enough capability in your PSU, the voltage may drop low enough to stop it starting up.
