I have 2 7800gtx different brands so i flashed one with the others bios for them to be able to run together, and it works, then i 3dmarked em and got 7814 points on 05, went and changed the rendering mode to alternate frame rendering and now i get 12233 marks, then i was having probs in bf2 with frame rates and went and turned off vertical sync and they went up but i still cant turn the AA up in game any higher and was wondering why, i get a max of 4x AA which i had with 1 card!! Please help and if you want add me on msn messanger Pimpin69@hotmail.de

AFAIK the max AA on BF2 ingame is 4xAA... If you want higher than that you have to enable it in the Nvidia control panel.

Hey jakup i have a question, Im upgrading from a 700W to a 1,000W power supply, cus my 700W blew up... I have an Asus A8N32-Sli Deluxe, I was wondering if this power supply would work for me:

I see its not ATX or whatever, but I don't know if it will work.

Thanks

edit: the waterr system u have doesnt come with those blue uhh... what are they called? well, the thing where water goes through, lol

Its this one, right?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16835108080

But I dont see the blue things anywhere


and last thing, I have 2 eVGA 7900 GTX 512 superclocked, is it worth it going for the 7950 Quad sli? Is there a way I can return the 2 I have in payment for the 7950? I bought from newegg.com.

And, I see on your picture, you have 4 cards that look like video cards, what is that? I really dont understand, I don't think theres space for 4 cardslike that on an Asus a8n32 sli like mine... Theres no space for more than 3 cards in Asus if you have Sli running

The mobo you have has more space than an Asus A8N 32 Sli right? I noticed you also have a BFG PhysiX card, that means you have 2 eVGAs, 1 Sound card, and another card, 4 cards total in there. It doesnt seem possible to fit 4 cards in an Asus a8n 32 Sli. Or am i wrong?

Yea the Asus board only has 2 slots, so you are limited to 1 PCI card.

Yea that PSU is fantastic, however, make sure you have room in your tower as it is an extremely large PSU.

I have a Lexta or whatever case, also, does the water cooling system u have comes with those blue things where water comes through?? I cant see them on the picture.

this is my Comp:

Asus A8N32-Sli
AMD Athlon 64 FX60
Corsair 2GB (2 x 1GB) Pro
X-Fatal1ty
x2 eVGA 7900 GTX 512 Superclocked


Im thinking of upgrading to 3 GB RAM, get the 1000W PSU, and upgrading from eVGA 7900 to 7950 Quad Sli, but I have a question... To upgrade from 7900 to 7950 Do i need anything?

Also, Im thinking of getting it water cooling, and thats why im wondering if to get the one you have i need something other than the link i posted.

Thanks
