What resolution are you running? With low resolutions sli and crossfire can give worse performance.

also, what drivers have you got?? grab the newest drivers, as they'll improve your SLI performance alot over older drivers

Well i'm using an old 17" crt and only 1024 x 768 so that could be one of the culprits right there.

Have the newest drivers but it could be the new card dosen't want to play nicely with my zotac.

Called the shop early this morning and they had 1 zotac left in stock but i didn't get there till 4pm and they already sold it so i had to grab the asus 9800gt hybrid power instead

Yeah with that res there is no reason to run multi gpu setups. I guarantee you that sli is hurting your frames. Take out one card and see how it runs then.
