Pay particular attention to pages 4, 5, and 6, which goes into depth of the micro-stutter problem. I'll never run SLI... it's just not worth the money to still have games be choppy, even though the "reported FPS" is a bazillion. That said... using a second, cheaper, card for dedicated PhysX looks interesting.
Interesting article.

It's about time these sites start tackling this issue, because it's a massive problem with certain setups. I have 580's now and I've never seen this issue, and those charts seem to come to the same conclusion, but my 295 had horrible micro-stutter.
