So I got the idea to play with SLI , ripped the Core 216 out of the system in my config. and put it into my secondary.
I7-965 @ 3.8
P6X58D
3x2 OCZ Gold
WD Black 500
GTX 260 192 core
Antec TPN 750

OS, in title, is a fresh install less than 24 hours old.
Have tried a couple of different drivers, currently on 197.25 after downgrading from 197.45 ( I use Driver Sweeper in safe mode in between installs ) and got the same thing with both;
3DMark03 ; runs fine, I think ( 50,000+ single card , 85,000+ SLI )
3DMark Vantage ; driver stops responding and system blue screens at the end of the loading screen for the first test.
BFBC2 ; goes to white screen about 5 seconds after spawing.

I'm about ready to give up, but I hate letting an inanimate object get the better of me.

Test the cards one by one and see if it performs OK with both.

Make a wish and it comes true, I was hoping for a response from you Maziar.
Both cards work fine on thier own, other than giving the white screen error in BFBC2 every now and then.

Well since BC2 is buggy,try testing with another game like Crysis,FC2 or other games that you have

I gave up.
My brother in law showed up at my door with a P6X58D and an 17-980x for me to beat on, all thoughts of playing with SLI disappeared from my mind, plus I needed the card to get the 980 up and running.
