No, he sold it to me because he was having financial problems. And I figured it wasn't going to be possible anyways. No need to be an ass about it man. Was just asking a question.

I hope you know you don't need SLI for more than two monitors.

Nvidia cards only support 2 monitors per card if I'm not mistaken..

@OP just sell the 580 on ebay and buy a second 460 for like 140$. That way you can feel good about helping your friend out, use 3 displays, pocket the difference (or use it for the third display), and still have more horsepower then you'll ever need for CS 1.6.

Hey no problemo. Also, looks like your mobo is perfect for SLI, and two 460s will net you slightly better performance then a 580. Might get a little tight on VRAM if you're gaming on 3 displays though in which case selling both the 580 and the 460 then buying two 6950s and unlocking them may be the route to go. Just another option if the 460s cant cut the mustard
