    nforce4 questions .....

    hiya few questions as to when i should upgrade mb and cpu i intend to wait to change mobo and cpu till the dual core amd's come out and was wondering if the current range of mb's will support the new dual cores or will a new mb be needed ?

    will sli be able to use ati cards in the future or will they most likely bring out there own sli deriative ?

    and will they be workable on nforce 4 boards aince theyre not nvidia

    ATI have never had any SLI cards. The RAGE Fury MAXX used to have two GPU's on it, but that was different.

    You will be able to use an ATI card in the boards (after all, PCI-Express isn't NVIDIA's baby) though the SLI implelmentation isn't like what Alienware are (or were) working on, so for that you'd need NVIDIA kit.

    I'm reading our NF4 preview now to see if I can verify all that for you.

    Edit: Yup, looks good to me.

    Oh, and dual cores... I think one of the benefits flaunted what that you could just drop in dual core versions, although BIOS updates will be needed at the very least.

    Yeah I'm starting off with 1 GPU, but may upgrade to a second over time if it's worth it.

    Hopefully somebody will be able to verify what I've said.
