Requirements for Nvidia SLI gaming computer builder

There has been a lot of questions over the internet about how to configure two or more Nvidia Cards in SLI.

Basic Requirements

• A PSU that has enough wattage to power all the GPU's in your system

• A Motherboard that is SLI ready and has enough spacing between the PCIe Ports

• A large enough case to fit the GPU's, unless you're working with an open rig

GPU Requirements

Heres where the topic gets a bit controversial, however I've searched for the best working configurations for SLI. Please comment below for your opinion on different Methods.

• The best case scenario would be to have two identical cards with the same -Manufacturer (Ex: EVGA, Gigabyte, Etc) -Model of the card (Ex: 2 GTX 980's) -Amount of VRAM (Ex: 2GB of GDDR5) -Clock Speed

• However, sometimes this is not possible so SLI can work smoothly with these additional methods. -Different Manufacturers but with the same GPU model, Clock Speed, and VRAM

   -You may be able to configure an SLI with two cards of the same model but different clock speeds, however the card with the higher clock speed will be downgraded to the speed of the lower clocked card. Therefore, its rather pointless in configuring SLI with different clocked cards.. -The same goes for the amount of VRAM, if one card has 2GB of GDDR5 and the other has 4GB. The 4GB card will only be able to use 2GB due to the differences in VRAM.   


-SLI with different GPU's will not work, do not try it. You will only be wasting time and money

-Different Manufacturers may work, however you will be prone to more problems in rendering games and such.

~I hope someone finds this guide helpful because I've had so much shit to deal with in my personal rig. If ya'll have any questions, please don't hesitate to leave a comment down below. Thanks ~XXMCID
