Hi there,

I noticed some MOBOs are labeled "SLI Ready" and some not. If I wanted to use dual SLI graph cards, do I need a MOBO that specifically says "SLI Ready", or would any MOBO that has the required PCI slots work?

Thanks.

The "SLI Ready" is a licensing/advertising issue. You really need to go to the motherboard's manufacturer site and double check everything for yourself. Some boards that are not advertised as "SLI Ready" can run a couple of NVidia cards just fine (just have to look at the fine print). Sometimes I just look at the accessory list for the "SLI Bridge". If it is included, chances are the board will run SLI.
