Hello, I recently purchased a second video card to pair up with the one already running in my machine. They are both 1GB EVGA GTX 460s on a Asus P5N-D SLI motherboard. I connected them with the SLI bridge and installed the new drivers for them, but when I check NVIDIA control panel there is no option for SLI. I am running Windows 7 64 bit. Any help is appreciated, if I didnt mention anything else, please ask and I will answer. Thanks.

Under 3D settings,(click on the '+' icon) there should be an option for SLi settings.
This should help you get a better idea.

I figured out that I have different versions of the same card, so I have to get a new one to match. Thank you though.

I should have guessed that. But you did say they were both EVGA GTX 460 1GBs..

Yea, When dealing with SLI. Its recommended that they be exactly the same. But there is some differences you can deal with

What must be compatible:
Same about of VRAM
Same GPU
Depending on clocks, must be same clocks to lighten microstuttering

What doesn't matter for same sake:
Brand


So play your cards right... and you should up and SLI'ing in no time!

Nvidia released different versions of the GTX 460. The old card I have is the original version. The new one I purchased is actually a scaled down GTX 560. When you look on the settings the card reads as GTX 460v2. They are unfortunately incompatible.

Yep, V2 doesn't SLi with a standard 1 Gig GTX 460.
