Make sure SLI broadcast is turned on in your bios, if your motherboard uses a SLI selector key, make sure that is set to SLI mode. Install the card and enable SLI in the nvidia control panel. It seems daunting your first time, but it's not too bad. Let us know how you go.

I'm sure his eVGA 680i doesn't use a selector key, just don't forget to connect the cards with the SLI bridge came with the mobo.

Uninstall your drivers first. It can save a black screen when rebooting.
Put in second card and SLi connector and boot up. Install drivers 169.09's are pretty good. Reboot and right click on desktop. Go into Nvidia drivers and enable SLi in the driver tab.
Done and enjoy.
