I dont believe Aion is 4 core supported and is CPU heavy. So the 300 GHZ is probably where the difference comes from. It also doesnt require very much ram. I ran AIon on 2 gigs of ram an 8600 GTS (Actually a really nice card, plays MW2 on all high settings as well with shadows disabled ) and a 2.5 GHZ dual core getting 40+ frames almost constantly. So i doubt your extra ram and cores are helping you here, you might even be taking a performance hit.

Are you sure you have enabled SLI in control panel? also make sure you have the latest drivers installed.
Test with some other games too like Crysis,COD MW2,Stalker,FC2 etc and check how much FPS you get in both systems

Go back to your Nvidia control panel and set all global settings to default. Try other benchamarks too to determine if it's hardware or just that one game.
