Hey guys,
I was wondering if it's possible to boot with two 8800GTs not in SLI mode, simply so I can run four monitors off my hackintosh.
Did a search but couldn't find anything on non-sli multi GPU set-ups. Search terms might have been a bit generic :).
I'm running GA-P55-UD5 at the moment with a single 8800.

Cheers in advance :).

You need to add graphics strings for your cards to the com.apple.boot.plist in system configuration. See http://aquamac.proboards.com/index.cgi? ... thread=569 and you might possibly find a string for your card here: http://aquamac.proboards.com/index.cgi? ... thread=509
