any body the best way to configure thrugh nvdia control panel i have physics disabled at the moment ,HT set to x16 & PEG set in the bios

seems like both cards are running x8  but there aint sli thrugh nvdia control panel & the cards even 1 at a time in slot1 seem to be clocked back just a tad

AMD overdrive dosent support nvdia cards . neather dose ET6 2.1
cpuz & gpuz & amd Nbench 32bit o/s   all work fine

maybe time to change to ATI

I was under the impression that SLI worked on crossfire, and that it was SLI boards that were more restrictive.

SLI would normally be set up in bios then the VGA nvidia driver would handle access to the two cards.

Going to have to investigate this as soon as I get hold of a pair of nvidia cards, especially as nvidia is my vga of choice.
