Hey i recently got my 2nd video card adn i cant get sli to work. Heres a list of what i know

I have a sli compatible a8n-sli premium
I have 2x leadtek winfast px6600gt's (sli compatible)
Both cards are firmly in there pci-x slot
The bridge connector is firmly in place
The retention bracket to keep the bridge connector is firmly in place
Both Video cards fans are running
When i follow nvidias set up process un how to set up sli, when i get to step 4, uninstall drivers and reinstall new drivers, your suppose to reboot and get an sli-compatible system message. I do not get this, and when i go to the nvidia display properties and click multi-gpu it links me to nvidias slizone.com i dont have a go sli option. My only idea is that maybe my 2nd pci-x slot is bad anyone have any ideas :( .?

Well yes, but you might not like my idea..

Sell your 6600s on eBay and get a single 7800 GT! SLI setups are always inconsistant and just generally a lot of trouble. Slap a 7800 GT in there and you will have more power and less trouble...

Sorry I can be more help with your 6600s.

Have you enabled SLI in the BIOS? this Motherboard requires you goto

Advanced -> SLI Configuration

then set "AI - Selector" to "Dual Video Card"

hope that works, then try reinstalling the drivers.
