About a year ago i purchased a limited edition Asus 128mb EN6600GT Top video card and all i can say is Whoa this thing is awesome. While i was doing the build, i noticed a tab with contacts on the outward side of the video card(opposite of the Mobo). I have researched the manufacturers site, various build your own pc sites and a few resellers sites and have yet to figure out what should be connected to tab. It obviously has a purpose but darned if i can figure out what that might be , so if anyone has a clue please let me know.
I know what SLI is but cant use them from what ive read because i use dual displays to run mutiple WoW accounts on the same pc so therefore found no reason to research them to point of knowing how the cards themselves are connected in SLI.
No i was not talking about effecting the game. Somewhere i read that you could not use 2 video cards in SLI and also use dual monitors in dual view mode with the NVidia software. Now it is altogether possible that either i misunderstood the article or that the information given was incorrect. If anyone has had experience running 2 monitors with dual video cards in SLI with each display showing something different( i usually have desktop on one display and a game on the other) i would appreciate a clarification on this matter because i would love nothing better than to have an excuse to dump this genuine intel mobo(D915PBL) and pick up an overclock friendly SLI board and a second video card. I am using an intel P4 775 3.4 GHz processor so any suggestions regarding a good, compatible, mid priced easily overclocked mobo would be greatly appreciated.

Ok , so according to Waylander , there is no advantage gained by using SLI with 2 displays. Now the question is why , and i am sure im not the only one who doesnt realy understand the difference between using two video cards in SLI or independent of each other , so to speak.
