Your setup is quite similar to mine. It's possible that it is a driver issue, but I would also recommend making sure you have the latest bios update. It's version P08.

I used to have trouble running anything with SLI and DX10 mode, but since I updated drivers and that latest bios update the problems went away.

Your PSU should have plenty of power to handle those cards. I'm only pulling about 550W from the wall with a pair of 8800GTX cards. You're probably only another 100W above that. How is your case for airflow? You need to have some decent fans in the front of the case to keep not only the GPU's cool, but also the northbridge.
