Hmm seems like it requires the room of two slots (because of its big cooling system), but it's connected into 1 only. That's not a set of two cards in SLI.

Here's a pic of one of them :

The connectors are the things on both sides of where it plugs into 16x slot? Is it compatible with an MSI K9N neo-f nforce motherboard? Cant give direct links, typing on Wii : l

Should be compatible with any motherboard that has a PCI-E 16x slot provided that you don't need the slot which is right next to it, I suppose...

Quite a few cards are like that, for example the 6800 Ultra, X850, X1900 etc.

Last question, would a powersupply with 12vplus 40 amps be enough for this card also people are talking about a pci-e cable from the power supply that goes into it.
