http://downloads.guru3d.com/NVIDIA-System-Tools-6.03-download-2100.html

New Nvidia System Monitoring Tools - 6.03 - Check on nvidia forums if you have a 79xx chipset and want the fancy version of these,

These are for folk with NVIDIA chipset motherboards.

If you already have NTune installed, uninstall that first

Just started playing with them but they are nice on the desktop tools that can be customised to give you a view of system performance. If you are concerned with temperatures, how much your GPUs are being used or interested in overclocking it gives you a nice readout.

Noit sure on the effect on CPU cycles but i'll let you know if i think its yet another thing that doesn't need to be loaded.

- Effects:-

Takes a while to initially load-up as it starts the drivers and loads the 3d display.
Will cause a nice hardware lockup if the monitoring system tray icon is loaded - and you decide to gun GPU-Z display program.

Some possible up and coming features for SLI users, mulit monitor support perhaps?




Quote :
The huge amount of work and money that’s going into CERN shows that it’s difficult to follow up an event such as the Big Bang, but it should be easier for Nvidia to make a sequel to SLI, which was codenamed Big Bang when it was in development. Its successor, Big Bang II, has been spotted on a few roadmaps recently, and it now looks as though we know what it is. If this rumour checks out, then it’s a new driver that enables multi-monitor support on SLI.

nice post undies, cheers for that.

However as i have discovered the perfect PC Hardware Money saving tip. I won't be playing farcry2 yet, or for quite a while.

* To avoid the rapid pc-upgrade path if you play the latest games, wait until the games are on "2 for £25" or equivalent before purchasing.
- This saves you money in software and you make sure you get the maximum enjoyment and playtimes out of older games.

i.e. the other day i bought EP 1 and 2 for HL for £9.99, and Combat Mission shock force for a £5.

Bit more info on the Nvidia Big Bang II Forceware currently in Beta.

http://www.tomshardware.com/news/nvidia-sli-260-280,6524.html

Including new Multi-Card, where you can install a lesser card than your main one, and have it devoted to Phys-X processing entirely, alternatively you can spread the calculations across SLI or on the single card only.

Not sure m8, the last time i played with SLI was about 2-3 years ago Sad

There is a little here http://www.slizone.com/object/sli_cuda_learn.html about different solutions though.








I did find this though, nothing to do with SLI, but its scans drivers currently installed and offers a pre-release version for you.
