Just run a benchmark! I mean, you did remember to benchmark before installing the second card, right? Just download and run 3Dmark05, then install the second card, and run the benchmark again. You should see a 60% - 80% increase in your score.

Also you have to enable SLI mode, in the nvidia control panel.
