dc7900 CMT

Hi,

I have the following PC:
dc7900CMT

I'm thinking of putting 2 graphics card in it in SLI, will this be possible?

What is its' default power supply (W)?

Will the power supply support 2 graphics card in SLI? Is the PC built for it?


Thanks

No.

I would provide the link to the Technical information except the HP site is down as usual.

Hope this helps.

What would be the reason of having 2 x PCIe slots on the motherboard?

Re: dc7900 CMT

The Wattage is 365W. There is 26.5A available on the +12V line. Please note this is shared with the Motherboard and peripherals(HDD/ODD). This is not a SLI supported Motherboard. You have two X16 connectors but only one is X16 and the other is trained down to X4. If you want to up the graphics performance you will need to stick with one card and upgrade the PSU.

Hi Christopher,

How can I differentiate the x16 and the x4, I don't have the PC with me at the moment. I will change the psu later on.

Re: dc7900 CMT

The X16 is the long black one closest to the processor and the X4 is the White one adjacent to it. It should be labeled on the board silkscreen in between these two connectors. Labels are "X16PCIEXP" and "X4PCIEXP".
