Asus Rampage Extreme III and 2 Nvidia 295 GTX will they work ?

Hi all as above. I have read that my board does not support quad sli unless I buy some daughter board ?
I have 2 Nvidia 295 GTX graphics cards that have 2 pcb's per card. I will be using PCI-E slots 1 and 3.

Will this rig work please, or should I sell and go for another card ?

Thanks in advance

Looking at the link below . It does say you could use either SLI or Crossfire

Hi many thanks for the link and the evidence is apparent, but I have read on forums that that baord does not support quad sli. The fact that my Gcards have 2 Gpu's each = 4, I am thinking it wont support them ?

I believe they're talking about one of these, which should have come with your board....

Also some cards (video) may also card with one.

And it would also help if you specifically told us what board you have since you say the link provided is what your board does.

The board linked clearly says....

Quote:
Multi-GPU Support
Supports NVIDIA® 3-Way SLI™ Technology
Supports AMD CrossFireX™ Technology
Look under specifications. Perhaps you're getting confused with something else?

It won't support 4 separate Graphic Cards without the Extreme 4-way SLI Xpander board .

Yes, they will work, you just need the connector sygnus posted.

Quad SLI on ASUS Rampage III Extreme is not possible
OK, as pointed out - dual (2 cards) SLI is doable with your board. Quad (4 cards) is not.

So, since you have two cards, you're good to go. Four cards won't work. You also need the connector I showed earlier, which either your card or motherboard should have supplied.

Hope this helps.
