Right click on your screen, pick NVidia Control Panel, choose the "Set SLI Configuration" tab and disable SLI.

I thought SLI had dual monitor support now of days

It does have dual monitor support, but the best way to get rid of SLI is to write an expose revealing that 2 cards does not equal twice the performance. You could be the next Woodward or Bernstein.

Most people already know that cf and sli are usually not twice the performance. And yes sli and crossfire does have dual monitor supprot.

Yes chef. That fact, coupled with the Woodward and Bernstein reference, may indicate I wasn't 100% serious there.
