I've built a new rig and was told by EVGA that I can install only one video card when loading Windows 7 for the first time because Windows 7 will only recognize one VC upon initial set up. Could somebody please confirm if this is true? I'm running water cooling with two GTX 480's and I'd prefer to not have to drain the system in order for me to install the second card after loading/setting up Windows 7.
Thanks for the input. I've recently been told that the EVGA Classified board that I have has a jumper that I can change to disable the slot, in addition to not plugging in the power cord. I think I'm going to try that first option. If anyone is reading this and wants an update on if it worked, let me know.
