How do I know if my video cards are running in SLI

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have two NVIDIA GeForce 7600GT's installed onto my motherboard and hooked together via SLI connector.

I downloaded the latest driver I could find, which gave me an option to use SLI technology. Obviously I checked this option, but on all of my benchmark tests, dxdiag files, and CPUz checks, it doesn't mention once that I am using SLI, or that I have two video cards even.

So how do I know if I even am running SLI?

You could also run 3dmark06 with enabled and without. There will be a definite difference in scores.
