Stupid question about dual video card configuration

  1. I just bought a new PC with two video cards(7900 GTXs). In order to get the full power from this configuration do both cards need to be plugged into the moniter? Right now there is only one card plugged in. Thanks!

    As long as you have the SLI bridge connector that is connecting the two cards (and since you have a pre-built system you can probably assume that the bridge is connected), you have it right. Only one of the cards connects to your monitor ,usually the card that is closest to your CPU, but check your manual to be sure.
