Yes, if it does say modded inf beside the driver then you will need to copy the file over to the extracted nvidia location folder, more specifically the display driver.

I'm not sure if i mentioned this but apparently thrre is a sli patch that does work, read the first post on the second of the link I provided to the 270.71 drivers. You should find the link above in the first paragraph. Hope that helps

EDIT: Here is the confirmation by the member:

Yea I've tried those they dont seem to have any effect, 266.58 is okay though. I'll see if my bridge has fallen out or something, either that its win 7 SP1 that I installed 2 days ago

Just a little update, got my second card and running SLI for the first time and I must say I'm loving it so far. Before I go into any testing I thought I'll share this with you. Im currently using the 270.51, which I explained where slightly, overall better than the others. Here is a before and after screenie.

270.51 single GPU at 870core



Here is SLI at 870core with exactly the same settings




As you can see, the fps almost doubled and SLI scaling in this benhcmark is almost 100%. The main reason for testing SLI scaling is to really see GPU usage when using both cards. In the screenie you can see that in SLI, I get 92% in one card and 99% in the other. Now as I said before, im not really familiar with Nvidia cards let alone SLI. So help and advice will be greatly appreciated.

One question I wanted to ask was, does SLI scaling differ in games and what GPU usages are regarded as satisfactory? Finally is there anything else that I need to know about SLI scaling?


By the way the reviews will go as planned and judging by the poll I will carry on testing the drivers with a single card and in SLI.

Thanks

I've been getting BSOD errors with the latest drivers, both 270.61 and 207.71. 270.61 ran fine since release until a couple of days ago. Checked my minidumps and they are related to nvidia sys files. Always removed drivers with Driver Sweeper before installing new ones. First started with the PCSX2 and now it does it with PC games.

Sorry to hear that mate, I would go back to the 266.58. It has shown promising results among the other's. The latest drivers do seem somewhat problematic. I yet to experience these problems, however, now that im running SLI, I hope that I don't come up with any problems.

Little help here guys, I wanted to monitor SLI scaling using the afterburner graph, is there a way to increase the graph size or something?

Thanks

Cool that's a pretty decent overclock on your gpu you got. Im just hoping I can get similar results when I experiment more under SLI.

No joke on this, the 268.03 drivers on my system are the most stable as far as BSOD's but I lost 10fps in heaven 2.1 on the 460 sli rig! which ones showed the best again?

Lol idiot, Believe me i even googled it, idiot indeed.

Anyway Im using the 270.51, no bsods for yet but i havnt even checked the other drivers yet. Im gonna wait until I watercool my second card before I do any further tests. I found the 270.51 to perform the best when using a single card.
