GTX 560 SLI Frame Issues

Hello all at Tom's Hardware, recently I installed a second gtx 560 and I've been playing bf3 and my frames have increased from around 80 to 150, however every 5-10 seconds i get a massive frame drop all the way down to 60 or 70. What could be the problem here?

    Driver? Resolution? Power supply? Cpu? I mean seriously how could anyone answer your question without ANY information whatsoever about the machine??
  3. Sorry, I was going to, I just wanted a response as to who would be helping me first... My drivers are fully up to date, i have an 850 watt power supply, and an i5 3450 processor

    this tells us nothing about the PSU other than the claimed wattage it has

    make and model are much more important
