And do I need to change/make them for the games I play?

They are essential settings in the driver control panel that only apply to a specific game.

For example:

the SLi profile for Half-Life 2, you can set in the driver control panel certain AA levels, AA type, AF levels Vsync, tiple buffering, etc. Those settings will be applied only to Half-Life 2 and not for any other game.

The global profile is just that- global. Those settings *will* be applied to every game.

Or at least that is my understanding of profiles. Anytime I used SLi I never messed with profiles, just used the Global Profile. :)

Ok, that much I get, but why doesn't the cp detect games I have installed?

It should detect most games, unless they are on Steam or there is no SLI profile for them. Not all games will have an SLI profile or even support SLI.

If your game is not detected, just click "add", point to your game .exe and see if it's detected.

I wish Steam games would be detected. Although it's sometimes easier to edit using the nvidiaInspector
