I am running windows xp pro
I have 2 PCI video cards ASUS N6200TC (nVidia chips), both these cards have an output for digitial and analog
My PC is new, I built it myself it has a ASUS P5ND2 mob with SLI (BUT I want to run 3 monitors not 1 with SLI)
I can't get windows to see the second card, do I have to put in the bridge used for SLI...?
help...

Does the Bios recognize both cards?  Did you check the bios for any enable/disable of the second card/SLI?

thanks for responding.  I just figured it out.  The two graphic cards I have do not support SLI... bummer.  My only two Graphic slots are my two PCI slots that make up the SLI setup on the mob...

You don't have to be running in SLI though.  Even though the cards won't work in SLI, you should be able to run both cards independently.
