    Default SLi Setup

    I have not been on this forum in years it feels like, and its pretty fun to look back on my old posts and such and see the people i remembered. Well recently i have been busy with computer building.

    Current Setup:
    i5 2500k Sandy Bridge @ 4.4gHz
    ASrock P67 EXTREME4 Gen3
    8GB Ram(G.Skill Rip Jaws:1600)
    NZXT Phantom
    XIGMATEK LOKI SD963 92mm:CPU Cooler
    250gb 840 Pro Series SAMSUNG SSD
    Crosiar RM-750w PSU

    At the moment i have a nVIDIA EVGA 760GTX 2GB, and just ordered another one yesterday. Did i make the right choice in SLi? I know two of these cards outperform a single Titan by a hair. Is there any special way to install these 2 cards, driver wise?

    Also just built a PC for my dad:
    Haswell i3 @ 3.4GHz
    8GB Ram(G.Skill Rip Jaws:1600)
    BIOSTAR Z87(LGA 1150)
    Sapphire 5850 TOXIC

    It used to be that SLI was really hard to configure and get to work, but today it's really really easy.

    If your motherboard has two PCI express slots, then just plug it into the other slot and connect the two cards with the bridge. Make sure both cards have power and then plug your monitor into the card nearest the CPU. That's it. You can check to make sure that your drivers are up to date and that both cards are recognized, but really you're done.

    If you have three PCI express slots, then plug the 2nd card into the the slot furthest from the CPU, skipping the middle slot, and connect them via a bridge. The rest is the same as above.
