You want to know how to put them in sli mode or do you want to know the best configuration options for max performance (which also degrades quality)?

Its best to let your game manage your settings, unless its an older game that doesn't support AA and AF, then you use the CP to force the driver to apply AA and AF. In the case of Doom 3, you get noticable performance increase by letting the game itself manage AA and AF settings rather than the driver.
