you sure you hooked up the sli bridge and the power wire going to it? Also make sure you have the latest bios for your mobo. And see if there is any options in your bios to enable sli.

Yes it is actually I just feel like there is no reason to be completely formal on a disscussion board. As well, I am freaking out about my computer not working at all right now so please excuse any poor grammar at this point.

Did you hook up a 4pin molex to your mobo above both your cards? That give your cards power from your mobo.
