SLI GTX580 DVI to Display

Hi just received my new rig and was wondering. I have x2 GTX580 3G in SLI that will be going to a single monitor. Does it matter which DVI slot I plug into? I figured top card. Each card has DVI x2. Any advise would be great. Thank you in advance.

  1. Ok in a nutshell. Do I hook up my DVI cable to the top video card or does it make a difference? Thanks.
  2. Top card.

    I must ask, why did you get a pair of GTX 580's (3GB versions no less) for a single screen? Is it 2560x1600?

    I've always used the top cards top DVI port, and don't bump your threads.
