Setting up Sli 8800gt's

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Well I finally picked up another 8800gt (xfx) to mate up with my msi 8800gt..

Heres what I did

1. Put new card in

2. fired it up .. 2nd card didnt show so I went into the bios and selected sli spread spectrum ON. Now it works..

3. Tried CSS and when I was flashed the screen would shudder and I would stay flashed for a longer amount of time than normal..

Then I went to bed..

Heres my questions to you guys!

1. Should I reinstall drivers? I never did after adding the second 8800.

2. what exact bios settings are necesary to be changed.

3. and lastly should I take the second card out of my case and smash it with a saucepan?

Did you enable SLI in the nvidia panel. I know I did not have to change any BIOS setting when I got my second I just had to enable SLI in the Nvidia panel in windows then reboot. I also updated the drivers after that.

Good Luck

Reinstall drivers. Be sure to use a driver cleaner to uninstall the old ones first.
