Hello!
I'm looking at a MSI NF750-G55 motherboard. It has an intigrated NVIDIA® nForce 750a SLI single chipset
and 2 PCI Express x16 2.0. I assume SLI is Nvidia's version of CrossFirex. THe problem is I'm not sure how the graphics cards run. (You know that 16x/x8 stuff) Here is the information the website gives me.

Slots

• 2 PCI Express x16 slots with x16 operation (PCI Express Bus SPEC V2.0 compliant)
• When 2 PCI Express x16 slots are all installed, the PCIE x 16 lanes will auto arrange form x16/ x0 to x8/ x8. :)
• 2 PCI Express x1 slots
• 1 PCI slots, support 3.3V/ 5V PCI bus interface.

Can somebody convert that to english? Does this include the intigrated graphics card? What does it mean! :)

Here is a link in case you need more info:

Hello again Peptobismal165.

Yes, the MSI NF750-G55 mobo has onboard integrated graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 8200. Here is a good in depth review from last November on the board.

To answer your other question: what it means when MSI states "When 2 PCI Express x16 slots are all installed, the PCIE x 16 lanes will auto arrange form x16/ x0 to x8/ x8" is that you can run two nVidia SLI capable graphcis cards on this board because it supports SLI, but basically in doing so you don't get the x16 speed, you get the x8 speed; although, when running two good graphics cards, you do reap the benefits of the graphics rendering power of both. nVidia's SLI is akin to ATI's Crossfire, if that helps you out any.

On this board, you can either choose to use the onboard video or to install one or two graphics cards.
