    I just put together an SLI PC only to experience problem after problem...First of all, though I have 2 GB of DDR2 533Mhz RAM, Windows only sees 1.37 GB. If i unplug the power from one of my video cards the RAM goes up to 1.87 GB, and if i remove it completely it gains a full 2 GB. Is this normal? I doubt it, but anyway...I've installed the drivers for the video cards from the disc provided, but when i get the most recent drivers from nvidia, the computer crashes either during or after installation and i have to remove the drivers completely to get video back. I've installed the nForce 4 Intel edition drivers with success, however. Normally I wouldn't worry about updating the drivers, but SLI doesn't seem to work properly in Call of Duty 2, even though I've enabled it in-game and in the control panel as well. Finally, on occasion using the DVD drive, the computer hangs and is completely unusable, all I can do is reset it and hope for the best next time...can anyone solve any or all of these situations? Specs are as follows...

    700W SLI-ready PSU
    ASUS P5N32 SLI Deluxe Motherboard
    Pentium D 3.2 Ghz
    (Yes motherboard is dual-core compatible)
    2 GB DDR2 533 Mhz RAM
    Dual XFX GeForce 6800 XT PCIE X16
    Samsung DVD/CD-RW Drive
    200 GB Seagate IDE Hard Drive
    Windows XP Pro W/SP2
