|So why not just run the board with the one graphics card. Installing it in the first slot should automatically detect. |
The board was state of the art at the time but IMO spending cash on 2 graphics cards for that setup is not sound. The processor, chip set, & RAM are all generations behind. You can only get so much out of it.
I assume you are a gamer. If not, why use two cards at all.
Did you look at the first link above? The test board was setup with 2 geforce cards, I think. Just browsed the review.
I doubt that anyone can guarantee any graphics card will work. I am not a gamer myself but I would guess that if you installed a cutting edge card in that board the RAM and CPU would probably hold back the performance.
