To do this you can enable the SLI Heads-Up-Display options Nvidia X Sever Settings GUI which can be installed by Yast. To do this start the utility select "OpenGL settings and check "enable sli heads up dispaly"

Now Select "X Server Display Configuration" and click on "Save to X Configuration File".

Now start an Application that should use SLI and on the left an HUD marked SLI should appear.
