The computer my church has, has a mother board with 3 pci-e slots. I know two of them are for SLI. But we are currently only using one card so do we put it in one of the SLI slots (which is where it currently is) or the one loner slot? Also does it make a difference in how well the card will work if it needs to be moved?
My reasoning has always been the closer you can get to the CPU the better. But maybe not in this case.
I found the board online if this helps: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1366/P6T/
And one more thing. We think the power supply is going because the computer won't come on sometimes and we have to unplug everything and wait a few minutes then plug it all back in and it starts. So the question is does a power supply have to be i7 ready as I have noticed some are saying? I mean what so different about the cpu that a power supply has to support it? The power plug into the main board is the exact same so a regular power supply will work.
Hmm, just thought of something. Maybe the current power supply is not i7 ready as to the reason in just 2 years it seems to be going out. In case anyone is wondering it's a 1000 watt power supply because they have one of the fastest video cards that actually takes 2 power cords beside the slot power. And they run 5 hard drives and 2 dvd burners and gobs of external drives. The computer is mainly used for video editing, rendering, and capture. Though it would probably play a mean high frame rate video game.
