Just built a new computer using an ASUS SLI Motherboard, and 2 6800 GT Nvidia Graphics cards, I am good a building computers but I suck at the software end of things. I am currently getting 145.75 fps. I assume this is good? Are there any tweaks I can do do get more speed? Also, How can I tell if both cards are doing their job with Doom 3, Halflife 2 ect??? There seems to be no control panel to make adjustments to SLI ???

Thanks

145.75fps in quake 3 is bad but 145.75fps in say cs source is very good. we need to know the game your referring to and at what detail levels (resolution, AA, AF)

Run 3Dmark05. If you get a score around 10K your cards are working great ;)
