I believe it, especially from Fry's. I have a feeling a LOT of those cards get "tested". I went through 3 HD 6990's from my local Frys that were clearly opened, one even had the warranty sticker on the BIOS switch taken off and then re-shrink wrapped into the box.

The last one I returned because GPU 2 simply disappeared is still sitting on the shelf for a low discounted price of $719.95.

Such a mega hassle this is turning out to be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have you run your system at stock Cpu settings?
Do you have your cards seated properly on the Pcie slots?
Have you tried to run them one card at a time in the computer?
Have you Clean-installed New Nvida Drivers?
Have you tried updating your Bios from ASUS?
Have you also tried updating your Bios from your motherboard's Manufacturer?
Have you tried connecting them to another computer if you can?
Do you have lucid virtu Mvp installed? (if you do un-install it)
have you tried connecting just a single monitor to a single card?
Is your SLI bridge working fine? Do you have a replacement?
What applications are crashing, and is this happening in all applications or a specific application?

If you try all these and they still don't work, then IDK, maybe contact ASUS, or request an RMA... I hope you find the problem redface.gif...

malmental: I will keep that in mind. Thank you.

I've been upgrading GPU'S since 95 startng with a 1MB Cirrus Logic upgrade...I'm no fool and have already tried everything on that list of yours with the exception of a new BIOS from Asus as I could not find one for the nonti 660.


I'm going to return them both and try 1 more time. Hoping for the best!


You see where you confused me? and Maybe even all of us? You said you got your first card from Newegg, and the second one from fry's electronics (that's how i read it). That's why everyone basically thought maybe "User Error". No one thinks you are a fool mister, we're just trying to help you, because as we thought, the chances of getting two bad cards from two different retailers is very very minuscule. I put that long list, so you find out what is missing, lord knows i myself have forgotten to plug my DVI to my Discrete video card and wonder for hours what was going on tongue.gif

All I can say is that the 1st 2 cards were nothing but headaches. The 2 I have now haul smoothly in BF3. I honestly can't feel or see any difference vs a single card. I have no complaints.

Now I just need LG to get off their butts and sell me an ips 144hz panel!

Excuse me guys
I have the opportunity to connect two MSI TF III Gtx 660 in SLI,but I'm worried about power supply,which is the Corsair CMPSU-620HX 620 Watt
The rig is:
i7 3770k
Asus Maximus V Gene
2x4Gb Mushkin redline@ 1866 mhz
Storage:
Samsung 1Tb & Samsung SSD 128 gb
and the two Msi gtx 660 cards
My question is would it be enough the old Corsair CMPSU-620HX for this setup,the cpu will be running @ 4.5ghz on AIR(noctua nhd-14)?
PS: Sorry for the bad English

I believe it will be enough ONLY if you are not overclocking at all... I have similar rig, 3770k @ 4.8 Ghz, and dual Msi 660, but i have a 750w 80 plus Silver powersupply. On the newegg PSU calculator, it says you need 618w, but that's just a rough estimate though... 620w might be okay with overclocking, but to me, that's pushing it to it's limits. You might want to consider getting a new 750W 80 plus silver or gold PSU just to be on the safe side.



Edit: With x2 4Gb sticks... It says you need exactly 620w

There is no friggin way that build needs 620W. PSU calculators are crap, they estimate extremely high to compensate for people who buy the $30 bargain bin units. A solid 620W like the one he has selected would run 680 SLI just fine, let alone 660's. My 3770k machine with a GTX 690 pulled a whopping 455W at the wall at full load both CPU and GPU, both OC'd decently. Makes me want to cry a little right now, my FX 8320 can pull 560W by itself at 5.0ghz tongue.gif
