I am but I thought Windows doesn't treat it like SLI/CF, does it? For example, do I have to create profiles specifically for games? In other words does Windows and games see the card as a single card?

I don't want to deal with unsupported dual cards in games or monkey with control panel settings to get games to see it... or have to wait for developers to create special drivers for it... I know developers will create fixes or optimization for specific cards which is high priority but I'm talking about specific drivers for dual card support...

Also, if in the future I wanted to add another 5970 I could then add another one as CF correct?

Thanks,
