It doesnt say you have sli in your system, you forogt to update?

If you run 3Dmark06 it should tell you whether you are running SLI

Similarly if you click on the nvidia control panel>3d settings>Set SLI configuration

It will either say that you have SLI enabled and let you configure it, or it tells you to purchase another card for greater performance

In the control panel you can also select the option to display how they function together! If you do that you will see if they are working together in 3d apps

3dmark06 will be about 2000 points difference on average with a pair of 7950 vs a single

Some boards have a card that you invert between the sli slots to activate it (like the abit nf4 for example). Alternately you may need to enable or disable the sli aperature in your bios.
