    In SLI mode it will only show 256MB RAM. SLI does not combine the video memory of both cards. It will use all the memory, just won't show it available.

    There is a setting in the nVidia control panel that will show the usage of each card as it is rendering your screen. I can't remember exactly where the setting is but if you check you should be able to find more info.
