660ti SLI dual monitor issue.
I currently built a computer and I'm having issues with running dual monitors in sli with my dual 660ti. My computer sees both video cards and I can extend the display. When I go into the NVIDIA control panel and enable SLI the PhysX box only shows one green box for my video cards and the other is green. Is there anything I can do to help fix that and run SLI dual monitors?

The only mistake I made when I installed my 2 x 660Ti's - DCII was putting the second card in the wrong slot. It must be in the PCI-E slot furthest from the 1st card. While it was in the wrong slot in was not able to activate SLI even though both cards were showing in the control panel. I only made the mistake in the first place because the cards were so much wider than my old 560Ti's that I couldn't see the slot numbers. It's unlikely this helps you but I thought I'd share!

If you're trying to run SLI across both monitors, like a two-screen Surround configuration, it will not work. If you attach both monitors to the Primary GPU, then you will be presented with the option of choosing one or the other as the "SLI Focus" - getting the benfits of the teaming - while the other will run in regular single-GPU mode...
