Well, my mate was playing yesterday (so my eyes were free), and during the game there was a lot of action at the beginning level and the frame rate would drop below 20fps at several points and stay there... It could have been a background program causing it though, don't remember what I had open at the time.

SLI is working fine, the cards are also fine as far as I can tell since they are working in all games as they should. My P Vantage score is above 20000. Warhead does utilise SLI somewhat, my average FPS are higher with two cards vs one. Can you run a couple of benches for me?

Download the Warhead Benchmark tool and run the Frost (plain) level and the Airfield Flythrough at Enthusiast DX9 1680x1050, let me know what it scores.
