Solved Fairly simple new build sli question Tags: New Build Windows 7 SLI New Build Systems Last response: September 19, 2010 1:19 AM in Systems Share kevbodian September 12, 2010 12:45:06 AM Hey, I've never built a computer with SLI before. Do you hook up both cards when you install Windows 7 or should I install windows 7 with 1 card and then add the second when everything is up and running?

Some tips/info in this article: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/amd-crossfire-nvidia-sli-multi-gpu,2678.html If nVidia, essentially you can do it either way. Sometimes, though, its just easier to get the build running in "simple" mode, then move to SLI. I'd go that route because I like "one step at a time".
