    You have a great board for running SLI.. I wonder if buying another video card just like the one you have and running it SLI would work better then any upgrade. I honestly dont know about SLI but i have seen some great numbers on benchmarks running SLI.

    That board should support almost all PCIE video cards.

    Thank you. It did not occur to me at all. Surely I would consider installing another video card, mbo has two pci e x 16 slots. I wonder whether both video cards has to be identical, like RAM

    Thanks

    Not same brand but the same GPU.. Nvidia GeForce 7300GS will work. pretty sure you need a cable to link the two together though.. should have came with the motherboard.. honestly I know very little about SLI.. I would suggest waiting for a better informed reply or asking at Anandtech forums.
