Hey i have dual Geforce 6600 Gt graphics cards on an Asus A8N-Sli deluxe mother board and im having some issues with it. First off, it doesnt seem that much faster then when i had one card, its an improvement but i really have to look to notice it.

i also noticed that under my graphics card settings it had this information:


Graphics Card Information

Processor: GeForce 6600 GT
Video Bios version: 5.43.02.46
IRQ: 18
Bus: PCI Express x8
Memory: 128mb
ForceWare version: 81.98
TV Encoder Type: NVIDIA integrated


it says my pci express is only running at x8 instead of 16x.
is it supposed to be like that or whats up?
thanks!

Yeah SLI on the older version split the x16 between the two slots so you ended with two 8x.

Try running a 3d benchmark like 3dmark05 see what you get and look up what you should be getting.
