I can't enable SLI?

#1Nocturne190Posted 10/2/2013 2:21:38 PM(edited)
So, my backup PC had this GTX 670 in it:

My older brother needed a PC, so I gave him my backup and kept that card.

My main PC has this card:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130782

I put the Windforce in my PC.
Windows and Control panel see it, but I can't enable SLI, only PhysX.
Are these cards not compatible?

I should note that I have the latest drivers: 327.23

They have to be the same card like manufacturer and model.

Can I mix and match graphics cards from different manufacturers?
Using 180 or later graphics drivers, NVIDIA graphics cards from different manufacturers can be used together in an SLI configuration. For example, a GeForce XXXGT from manufacturer ABC can be matched with a GeForce XXXGT from manufacturer XYZ.

Taken from Nvidia's website.

Does your motherboard support SLI? Did you bridge the cards together with an SLI bridge?

Wow, really?

Hmm, when I had my 460s, I had one PNY, one EVGA and it worked.
I guess that's changed.

Okay, thanks for the input, mate.

Yeah, it supports it, I've used it before.
And yes, I have a bridge.

No, he's trolling. It just has to be the same GPU chip. You not being able to enable SLI is perplexing to say the least

Yeah, I'm kind of at a loss lol.
Does BIOS number matter maybe?

Have you done a clean install of your video drivers since adding it?

I wasn't trolling, I was just incorrect apparently.

Nice way to troll though.

Yep. First thing I did upon installing the card. That's how I new the driver number.
This is so strange....
