I currently am unable to find the options to use the GPUs I have to render some footage in blender. Im using the Blender Rendering engine, but I dont have an option to use the GPUs, even though I enabled CUDA rendering in the preferences. Thanks for any help or insight.

My GPUs are GTX 980s, and I have the most recent driver installed.
