so i have the nvidia 780i chipset in my motherboard which, as you know, is tri-sli ready. I have 1 8800GTS 512mb card in there presently and am thinking about adding another or upgrading to the GTX260(making up my mind in that area is another thread, altogether). Now, supposing i add another 8800GTS for SLI, i will still have 1 pci-e 16x slot left. is it possible to throw another card, say a 9600GT or another sub-$100 card in there just as a folder?? other than HEAT, what kind of problems am i looking at if doing that?? and with the SLI cards, will i be able to just turn off SLI when i'm not gaming so that I can fold on each card?
EDIT: okay, after more research it looks as if i need to build a VGA Dummy Connector? anyone get this to work without using one of those? my soldering skills are up to par but it just seems like a lot of trouble getting my hands on those parts. anyway...if anyone has any ideas, please let me know. i really appreciate it
