... for multiple monitor, multiple gpu goodness but it doesn't work :(

Spec as per sig, running Vista 64 Ultimate.

The plan was to run the 8800GTX in sli on my main monitor and then drive 2 second displays (only have one of them at the moment) from the 7950GT. All works fine except am unable to get sli working.

Any advice would be appreciated as I'm not sure if this is to do with drivers (currently running 100.65 although have tried 101.41) or the mobo (currently awaiting x-shipping for the new revision) or more likely my own simple mindedness :D

Thanks in advance.

SLI + multiple monitors is a "no go" AFAIK. It is one or the other, but not both at the same time, alas.

I agree with Sli = no multiple monitors but I thought by adding the third GPU into the non sli pcie slot it would be possible to run sli on 2 gpu & 1 monitor and then let the third gpu do what it wanted.

I think other people have gotten it to work by using an ati card to drive other displays. But I can recall at the moment.
