you need a bridge connector. It should come with your SLI mobo.

well yeha i knew what Sli was and is, but what i want to know is on new egg there are several 6600 graphics cards that do not suppport dual GPU but they somehow have Sli support i found this on tiger direct "Note: SLI is accomplished through software included with the Video Card"

maybe there is more to SLi then just dual graphics cards???

yes there is. With the new 81.xx drivers, you dont need a bridge connector, but it reduces performance.
