    Here's a good Tomshardware guide on CPU-GPU balancing.

    Example:


    A GTX295 (two underclocked GTX275s, which performs slightly above two GTX260s) is bottlenecked by a Q9550 @ stock in certain games.


    I would say overclock your CPU to a good 3.0GHz or more for dual GTX260 SLied, or 3.6GHz or more for triple GTX260s.
