    Muahahah, I got that board as well... :)

    So, guys, anyone on SLi before?

    I'm still planning to recycle my Coolermaster Extremepower 430W on it - since that board is SLi, could a non-SLi PSU harm that board as well?

    I'll put one 8600GT card inside for now. Haha. :)

    Well we canot say it's the same...

    SLI = Scalable Link Interface
    Crossfire = AMR (ATI Multi Rendering)

    AMR has been primarily used by Evans and Sutherland, for commercial flight simulators, because of its ability to use more than two VPUs. ATI has introduced a "consumer level" version of AMR, which they refer to as CrossFire or CFx.

    Here the comparisons between SLI AND CFx


    -ATI has opened the Crossfire architecture to Intel, allowing CrossFire to be enabled on certain Intel chipsets which boast two 16x PCI-E slots. SLI, however, requires a motherboard which is SLI certified

    -On Spider platform, utilizing CrossFireX with AMD 790FX chipset and Radeon HD 3800 series video cards, the user can use multiple displays and maintain CrossFire functionality while SLI and previous generation CrossFire setups are limited to one display only.


    -If an OpenGL game does not have a Crossfire profile, the Catalyst AI system will set the rendering mode to Scissor by default, with no way to change it to a more suitable or faster mode, such as AFR. However SLI allows the rendering mode to be set for each application manually, even for games which do not have an existing profile. It should be noted that setting Catalyst AI to 'Advanced' allows manual mode setting for Direct 3D games, but not OpenGL games, to AFR.

    -The first generation CrossFire implementations (the Radeon X800 to X1900 series) require an external y-cable/dongle to operate in CrossFire mode due to the PCI-e bus not being able to provide enough bandwidth to run CrossFire without losing a significant amount of performance and puts more cables on the back of your computer:nuts:
