New SLI build, question! Tags: Build SLI Systems Last response: November 17, 2010 11:24 AM in Systems Share graemevermeulen November 17, 2010 10:40:50 AM Hey guys, I'm sure a lot of people that are new to SLI have this same question, I can't find much about it on the internet. When building a PC from scratch, can you put both the cards in and bridge them before installing Windows or would that cause an issue? Would it be better to get all the drivers etc installed and working on Windows before dropping the second card in? Thanks for any responses.

Out of curiosity though, could you build a full SLI or CrossfireX system, boot and do a fresh install of Windows with no problems? gkay09 November 17, 2010 11:19:50 AM ^ Yes you could do that too I guess... graemevermeulen November 17, 2010 11:24:32 AM Thanks buddy.
