    This may seem like a easy question, but I just need to confirm my suspicions, does the SLi bridge which connects the two graphics cards together need to be from the mobo that supports it (the one that comes as packaged), or can a bridge from another company suffice??

    I am not too informed of how SLi Bridges are made, so please help me out.. I've seen this bendy bridge which seems so cool...I am wondering if I could use that?
    (google is not my friend today)

    Let me know if it's possible. the IT department looks busy today at work otherwise I would ask them...but I'll truly appreciate it if anyone can help me out :D

    I think it should work.

    The only differences for motherboards is the length between the PCI-E slows and thus the length of the bridge. A flexible one should negate this problem.
