Default Re: 2 Nvidia 9800M GT's in SLI

I've actually gotten it to work now:

My xorg.conf:
Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier     "Layout0"
    Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
    InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
    InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
EndSection

Section "Files"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"

    # generated from default
    Identifier     "Mouse0"
    Driver         "mouse"
    Option         "Protocol" "auto"
    Option         "Device" "/dev/psaux"
    Option         "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
    Option         "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"

    # generated from default
    Identifier     "Keyboard0"
    Driver         "kbd"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier     "Monitor0"
    VendorName     "Unknown"
    ModelName      "Unknown"
    HorizSync       28.0 - 33.0
    VertRefresh     43.0 - 72.0
    Option         "DPMS"
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier     "nVidia Corporation G92 [GeForce 9800M GT] 1"
    Driver         "nvidia"
    VendorName     "NVIDIA Corporation"
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier     "nVidia Corporation G92 [GeForce 9800M GT] 2"
    Driver         "nvidia"
    VendorName     "NVIDIA Corporation"
    BusID          "PCI:4:0:0"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Screen0"
    Device         "nVidia Corporation G92 [GeForce 9800M GT] 1"
    Monitor        "Monitor0"
    DefaultDepth    24
    Option         "SLI" "Auto"
    SubSection     "Display"
        Depth       24
    EndSubSection
EndSection
Although now, when i want to go into nvidia-settings or play a game(like Nexuiz), it(and by "it" i mean everything) tends to hang for 10-15 secs before continuing as usual.
Seems as if enabling SLI is causing a decrease in performance?

Booting up also takes a little longer, the screen goes black for a sec as if it's off, but then the backlight goes on again and it boots up as usual.
