until you get to 2560x1600.It does'nt make a lot of since unless it is the drivers.some say it is CPU bound and needs a lot faster CPU.
Yeah, the faster I make my CPU, and memory MHz too, the higher the minimum fps is with 'SLI Enabled'.

I've found that with CPU at 3.4-3.6ghz, memory at ~1000+ @ 5-5-5-15, and World Detail at 2 (LOL), I can get a constant 60fps with 'Enable SLI technology'. So that's what I'll use, as I play UT3 just online now, so not too concerned with the eye candy. Constant 60fps is the most important thing. Increasing World Detail, even to 3, results in noticeably worse fps.
