    What can i put in SLi?

    Hi all,

    I've got a BFG GTX280 in my rig atm, i've been looking at getting a second but as far as i can tell the 280's are discontinued... or am i wrong? (and if they are discontinued... then why??)

    Anyway, is it at all possible to put a gtx280 in SLi with a 285? I don't know what specs i should be looking at for compatibility.

    GTX 280's have been discontinued and have been replaced by the 'better' 285 GTX. Check this thread here - it may answer your question.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.
