I know.... yet another GTX480 SLI question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Just got my second GTX 480 and have a couple questions:

Do the SLI profiles get updated with every release of nvidia's drivers or should the NVIDIA SLI Profile Updates (currently at version 6) be installed as well? Currently I have 260.89. So far FPS has generally doubled except BFBC2 but I haven't installed the newest patch which may fix this.

Also is there any way to have dual monitors, one on each video card with SLI enabled? When enabling SLI, the monitor will go into power save mode. The reason for wanting one monitor on each video card is so both video cards properly downclock.

Thanks in advance for your responses.

If you run one monitor on each it will not be using SLI.
