MSI MOBOS WITH SLI ?
« on: 30-May-20, 18:36:19 »

Hello there,
I would like to upgrade my computer and i wanna keep my GTX970's in sli for some more time. So im using MSI 970 gaming motherboard with FX-8120 CPU. My set up is pretty dam unbalanced and its getting really old so i wanna get AMD ryzen 5 CPU bit im running into the issue of finding sli support in motherboards especialy with X570 launch. So im asking for help to find a motherboard that has SLI support and is not over 300$ price. i just dont have 500 or more $ to spend on a motherboard. And for people saying to just get a better GPU and don't worry about it, well i just don't want to, i get playable experiance from the graphics cards and don't feel like it. So i would love to get an MSI one but if its from other companys ill accept the suggestions. So thank you for looking into this and i really hope that ill find something :)

The MSI X570 Ace has x8 x8 capability which will allow your GTX 970 cards to run fine in SLI.

This motherboard is expensive but for SLI cutting corners is not an option.

Hope you have a good PSU as the MSI X570 Ace needs lots of power.

I would not use a 3rd gen Ryzen 5 with an x370 board. The differences are too great at this point, and with an X370 board you lose any chance at upgrading any further in the future at this point. X370 is basically at End of Life right now.

I agree, unless you already have an X370 and you are buying a new motherboard, the X570 is the platform of choice at present.

SLI requires a costly license from Nvidia so only the top-end boards still have it for the few users needing it.

In case of MSI's X570 models these do suppport SLI:

- MEG X570 GODLIKE
- MEG X570 ACE
- MEG X570 UNIFY
- PRESTIGE X570 CREATION
