Hello, I just plugged in my new Asus GTX550 Ti bridged with my old one Gigabyte GTX550 Ti. My question is why there is no SLI Option in control panel ? The only option is to set the secondary as a Psysics GPU. Both are SLI compitable and as far as i know the brand does not matter as the chipset does. Any ideas ?

Do you have the SLi bridge connected correctly?

Sometimes a Driver re-install is needed for SLi to show up.

Have you tested the cards individually?

Try another CLEAN driver install, make sure you completely remove the drivers before re-installing.

You still didn't answer whether you have the bridge connected.
