4. Enable SLi in nvidia control panel

I do this every time I use a different card, even if its not adding one for SLi. It just saves you time you would waste troubleshooting it should something goes wrong.

Good for you.... Too bad this doesn't make any sense. So it's a bigger waste of time avoiding an unnecessary step?

You save time by troubleshooting after you have a problem, which he most likely won't have.

My SLi rig says your SLi rig was on crack.

Hello again,
I have just install both cards, activate sli in control panel and play for a while but
When I reboot my computer it only allows me the resolution 1600 x 1200 and also gives me an error: you are not currently using a display attached to an nvidia gpu
Please help.
