[Update 1] i am able to play farcry 3 with both cards on max settings with no problems, SLI however i have experienced 2 quick drops in FPS down to 1 for a second then it goes back up to its normal value. the issue seems to be with arkham city

[Update 2] civilization 5 with SLI causes black screen and locks up my PC causing me to force a reboot. i can play it when i dont have SLI turned on.
