Hi,

I just bought another Asus EN6800GT to enable SLI but i am having problems.

Both video card are working properly because i have swapped them in the first PCIE slot and they

both works. I have put the SLI connector on top of the cards.

Installed the Driver 84.21 and when i go in the SLI multi-GPU section, it is written that "You must remove any graphics cards that are not compatible with NVIDIA SLI technology before you can Enable SLI". I have 2 Asus EN6800GT and they are both SLI capable???

I have also installed the driver 91.31 and i was not able to check the Enable SLI technology in the Nvidia Control Panel. Each time i was trying, once i was clicking on the Apply, the Control Panel was reverting the setting to SLI Disabled???

Both Cards are present and working in the Device Manager.

Does anyone have an idea what is happening?

My rig:

A8N-SLI Premium rev 1.02 with Bios 1009
2 x Asus EN6800GT rev 1.01 with bios 5.40.02.26.AS09 and 5.40.02.48.AS07
2 GB OCZ Platinum memory in Dual Channel.

Thanks for your help.

Why did you buy two 6800GT's when you could have bought two 7600 series for near enough same price but better performance?

I believe he bought ONE 6800GT to add to his current one.

To the OP, Have you enbaled SLI though the motherboard? Some require you to set a jumper, or change a slot key. My abit motherboard needs the slot key to be intserted the other way to enable SLI. Check your manual.
