Hey, can you run SLI with 2 PCI cards... thad'd be sweet, as i have 2 GeForce 2 PCI cards....
afraid to try without asking first :o
i know the old Voodoo cards ran SLI with PCI

PCI SLI = Scan Line Interleave
PCI-e SLI = Scalable Link Interface
Somewhat similar in theory, but PCI SLI was ONLY used by a company called 3dfx.
The only way that Nvidia uses SLI today is because they bought out 3dfx a few years ago.
Absolutely no Nvidia cards use PCI SLI only PCI-e SLI.
Sorry it wont work, unless you can get two voodoo 2 cards.

Technically, 3dfx also did single card SLI first as well, over not only PCI, but AGP bus' as well.
3dfx's Voodoo5 6000, was going to be the worlds first quad SLI on one card. 3dfx folded before it came to fruition, and there are only a few beta boards left out there. They plainly have an onboard PCI bridge.
