Hey.

I have a small issue, maybe.

Thing is..

I just formated the PC blabla due to sandy, and got a gtx 460 more.

It's for dedicated physx, but its limited what games using that, so its not dedicated for it all the time :=)

I played Black Ops and noticed in EVGA Precision that only one of the GFX was at 59c and the other one 30. So it seems its not using them both?

Same with WOW and MW2.

Go to NVIDIA Control Panel, Under "Set SLI and PhysX Configuration" choose "Maximize 3D Performance" and on PhysX Settings select your #2 Card, Uncheck "Dedicate to PhysX"

I sure hope you have your SLI Bridge connected lol.

P.S.: All of the above, in case you have 2 GTX 460s, that is. lol

Especially since WoW, MW2, nor Black Ops supports PhysX to begin with. There's only a handful of games that even uses PhysX that's worth it anyway, and SLI 460's will handle them fine without dedicating one to only PhysX.

OP, just enable SLI and leave PhysX on auto-select or the 2nd card, doesn't really matter.

I was either completely stupid or tired, but seems I installed a old version driver, so wasn't even the option to sli


Now I got my new WD Black (6gb/s weeh) and installed everything on new, and now I have the option to "Maximise 3D performace" or what the option is named.. So SLI is enabled :=)
and y I wont dedicate a card to SLI, guess they'll do fine :=)

BO is running greater than ever..

You can enable the ''SLI Visual Indicator'' at the top of the Nvidia Control Panel and then you can confirm by the green moving bar that SLI is working.
(Of course, disable it later as it can be distracting while gaming)
