Windows 7
i5-2300 Sandy Bridge
Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3 Motherboard
8GB DDR3 1333 RAM
2 MSI NVidia GTX 580 Lightning cards.
Cooler Master 1000W PSU

Issue:

I run just fine with one card plugged in and no bridge, but the moment I plug the second card in with any amount of bridges, neither of my monitors turn on. The card boots, the LEDs come on for both cards when they're both in, but the monitors do not function.

Sausage,

I am currently reading this page: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/amd-crossfire-nvidia-sli-multi-gpu,2678-2.html about dual GPU configuration and installation. It might help you.

Thanks for the reply, but that only helps if I can get the computer to turn on with both cards in.
