Default SLI + 2nd monitor

Ok after a bit of research i figured out how to get away with full time SLI and running a 2nd monitor. Apparently what you have to do is run an ATI or non nvidia card. Right now im running dual 8800gt's in sli and i had an old 1650 so i figured i'd test it out. It does in fact work. But this assumes that your board has the slots to support 3 video cards. Luckily my evga 680i has 3 pci-e ports.

Nothing to see here.
