Well, I have this old motherboard and I can't figure out how to sli with it

This is the board
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130487

Problem is, that between the pci express slots if you look
there is like this card you can take out and turn around and put back in, and I wasn't into computers when this way of enabling sli was used, so I don't know how to use it, does anyone know what to do?
Thanks for the help.

I had one of those boards once upon a time.

Honostly I can't remember 100% but i'm fairly sure you don't have to mess with the bios tho.

I think it's like you say, just switch the little card around to put in in SLI-mode, then it's just a matter of installing the cards and enabling SLI in the drivers.

Hope this helps.

If it's s true SLI mobo and you have the cards installed correctly than you enable SLI through the video card driver in windows.
