Hello Guys,
Well, I am just stumped - have the Asus A8N32-SLi board, and 2x 7950GTX2 GFX cards.

Uninstalled all drivers, incl chipset, from WinXP SP2 setup. Flashed Bios to latest 1303. Use one card only to boot into windows to load drivers - this is where the fun starts.

System will boot to desktop, but approximately 20 seconds, it will completely garble the display. It's ok at 1st, but with no GFX drivers loaded, it will garble after few seconds.

All that I have installed is new 6.86 chipset drivers from nVidia's site.

With either 1, or 2x 7800 GTX cards, everything works fine, sli, etc, no worries, been using this setup watercooled for a few months.

Recently got my Apple 30" CD, and want to game at 2560x1600, and only quad sli will give decent framerates.

Any of you guys had similar problems trying to install even just one 7950gtx2 on Asus A8N32 board?

Any feedback appreciated.

I am an expert user, have checked obvious things.

Have 2x psu's, 1st Thermaltake Toughpower 750, and 1kW PC Power and Cooling. So obvously not the problem.

Thanx Guys.

Ok, so for future reference:

I have completely disabled Peg Link mode in Bios, even if set to normal it caused bad garbling of grafix. With PEG disabled, 91.45 drivers loaded fine, and Windows appearance great on 2560x1600 Apple Cinema Display

:)

Hope this helps someone in future though
