Just blew the bank and invested in two of the above in SLI config. However, I am having the trad SLI issue of the horizontal green line in games. I have downloaded the latest drivers but the issue remains. Any thoughts people?
WTF!? You have 1024MB is VRAM??? That's H4X!
Well, did you follow the instructions on how to set them up??
from: http://www.slizone.com/object/slizone_ask_mmm004.html [INDENT]What are the green lines that appear on my screen when in SLI Mode? If you see horizontal or vertical green lines on your screen (shown here), it means that you have "Show GPU load balancing" enabled in the NVIDIA Display control panel. When enabled, this option shows how your GPUs are sharing the graphics load. For games that are rendered using AFR (alternate frame rendering), the vertical line will grow up and down, depending on the amount of scaling. For games that are rendered using SFR (split-frame rendering), the horizontal line will move up and down, showing how the load is being balanced between each GPU. If the upper half and the lower half of the screen have a similar level of detail, the horizontal line will stay close to the middle. To turn SLI load balancing on and off, simply follow these steps to get to the screen you see below: 1) Right click on your desktop and select "Properties." 2) Select the "Settings" tab. 3) Select the "Advanced" button in the lower right corner. 4) Click on the "GeForce 7800 GTX" Tab in the upper right hand corner (or whatever GPU you are using). 5) On the left now appears a menu; select the "SLI Multi GPU" tab 6) Two checkboxes now appear: "Enable SLI Multi GPU" and "Show GPU load balancing" 7) If you want to show the load balancing (green lines) make sure that box is checked; if you don't, make sure it's unchecked. 8) Once you've made up your mind, click "Apply" [/INDENT]
Well congratulations, you have the strongest possible GFX setup for now. Must've been hard to find one, let alone 2 7800 GTX 512...
Two 7800 512's in SLI!? How much did that cost you?
I think it's a waste and will laughing next month when they are obselete. :p
Thanks guys - that sounds spot on - can't believe I missed it. I am at work now so will try out when I get home. Re: availability, I think I was very lucky - I pre-ordered when the card was announced and it only arrived yesterday. :) Re: cost, yes it nearly broke me - don't tell my girlfriend ;)
