Definitely not running it across all three displays, since it's such a heavy game. When I have my display set for surround (a virtual single display) it disables SLI, which I need to run the game at a higher framerate.

Also... I'm not high... at least not right now.
Sorry mate but I don't know what those Gpu'z readings mean as I've never needed to use it for trouble shooting.
When I first started playing it it was unplayable until I updated to the latest Nvidia driver but that transparency effect was on this latest set. What settings are you running the game at?
I found that the V-sync in Watch Dogs is totally broke and causes a lot of lag spikes/freezing with each of the different settings apart from off. The settings which most affected how well the game ran for me were,
Antialiasing, 2x TXAA ran best for me.
Dof=off
V-sync = off
Max pre rendered frames = 3
Textures
Run the launcher as admin.
Disable desktop composition for the game to save on Vram.
You may have different results than me though. I take it your gpu's are 4Gb cards as you're running 3 screens?

I can't remember what temp you said your cards were getting to but the Kepler gpu's throttle by 13MHz at each of these points 70,80,85,90c. I wouldn't have though that would cause you a problem but it maybe worth checking.
Some info on Kepler boost ~~The GTX 670 Overclocking Master-Guide~~

aaaaannnddd..... I woke up this morning to find my computer freshly rebooted with the "Windows has recovered blah blah **** you" box... so there's something we still haven't figured out...

edit: I also remembered I fell asleep with a game running...

I believe GPUz has a 12V reading, watch that while running your next game. The ATX standards are +/- 5% (11.4 - 12.6) So anything within those ranges should be OK. If you had the same problem with the 670 and now with the 2X 760's it seems to me it is the board or the PSU. However, the possibility still exists that one of your cards is defective.

Now I'm experiencing it everywhere, even my mouse cursor has problems keeping up with things. I don't quite understand it. It's more prevalent with the mouse cursor and such when I have a virtual machine running (VM is on but inactive and only allotted 4GB of RAM).

And how many CPU cores. I run about 5 VMs but I never leave them running. I run them when I am using them, then shut them down. Inactive still takes away from system resources, which you appear to be having problems with now, for some reason. Shut the VM down and see if that makes a difference.

Single core for most, that one may be two, but again, idle, and host CPU usage was still in the single digits. Shut it off and it works better, but not perfect. It's still strange when there's single digit CPU usage but acts like it's at 100%

If I am not mistaken you have 4 cores and 16 GB of ram. If you gave the VM 2 cores and 4 GB of ram, you gave given 50% of your CPU and 25 % of your ram, plus the 1.5-2 Gb it takes Windows to run. That is really a pretty sizable amount of resources from your computer. That being said, you really should have enough left for normal tasks. Windows should be running on 2 cores and somewhere around 10 GB of ram, which should be sufficient for simple routine tasks, in my opinion. With it running, in windows, click start and type task manager and click the performance tab. It should show you the resources being used and how much you have free. But, again, you should have enough resources for normal usage. But, if you try doing something that is CPU intensive , you may see a big performance hit.

But again, that's why I shut mine down when I am not using it. How much resources you give it matters. A Linux Distro will usually not use all of 2 cores or 2 GB of ram, Windows or a mac install would need more ram and could use more CPU, but I don't give them more than 2 cores.

Yeah, the VM I use the most currently is a Mac OSX VM, I'm trying to get OSX working on my Lenovo Yoga. Pain in the ass, but would be really really cool. Any ideas on why my machine seems so easily choked, even at lower usage levels?

No, I really don't. Basically your CPU has 4 cores and mine has 4 cores and uses hyper threading so 4 cores/8threads.
That being said, I can't see how you would have mouse lag. You still have ample ram left But have divided your CPU in half. The CPU would take a definite hit in a CPU intensive task, but moving the mouse does not qualify. It should work as normal, I would think. Does it drag on other VMs other than OSX? If not, that may be the answer. Maybe the Mac OS is dragging your computer resources down, even in a VM. And that is only a guess. I have never tried that one. I run XP, 8.1, and several Linux distros, and they do not bother mine that much.

Typically the other VM's don't affect the mouse, but I've seen that activity at any usage level, even just Chrome with a couple tabs open.
