View Full Version : Sli question
I have an Asus 7900 GTX and an EVGA 7900 GTO. If I ran the GTO as the primary card would they work together in Sli? Or would I need to flash the GTO bios to GTX?

I would flash the gto and then sli them either which way you like.
So the different manufacturers bios would mesh?

yes you can also force the flash the gto so it will be a evga! Just change the ID to read evga and force flash it using "nvflash -4 -5 -6 whateverbios.rom"
The GTO is an EVGA. When I flash the GTO to GTX it will be an EVGA GTX.
The "actual" GTX I have is an Asus and then I will add an EVGA "GTX" to the SLI. I remember reading something about BIOS having to match but there is SOOO much material brought up in a search I was hoping to get a clear answer on it before I start connecting components together.

ok sorry for the mixup. But EVGA's daont have an ID anyway. if you download nibitor it wont show a ID for the board vendor. So what i would do is flash both cards to say gainwards! And the force flash the cards. If you need any help i am on yahoo messenger or x-fire as "liftedcj7on44s"

GTO should have different ram. So be careful when you flash it to GTX.

gto and gtx have the same ram
I went ahead and purchased a second GTO in the classifieds to match mine. It's a lot less hassle and a lot less to worry about.

I know but I'm giving this system to my brother who has just now gotten into gaming so I want to make sure it's as stable as possible. He's moving to Kansas and that would be a long drive for me to go and fix anything from Washington State. :D
