And my framerate is like 40.. wtf

What mobo do you have?

Try updating your mobo drivers, Windows, and your BIOS.

Are the clocks correct in game or is that card downclocking, Your not in a raid right now or a really busy district are you?

How does one update the mobo drivers??

I just updated my BIOS but im not sure what mobo I even have..

It looks like the card is downclocking itself?

Please understand that even with games like wow that support SLI its still flakey to some extent. But you should be getting 80-90 fps. Let me do some more research.

When you are gaming what does the temp get to on your card.

That is the right temp for a gtx 690 underload. The only way I can see the fps being that low is if one of the two gpus is taking all the load. In your nvidia setting how do you have the physx setup?

The only way it says Enabled is when I check off Maximize 3D Performance, but then It wont let me extend my desktop to my second monitor

Read the description below, that setting is not related to dual gpus (just display monitor – keep it on multiple display). Look in where you are in manage 3d settings and mess around with the settings. Google those for better understanding of what each of them do if necessary.

We're not sure what mobo you have, if there is a chance you have a gigabyte and nowhere in nvidia control panel you’re seeing sli then you may need to check the bios out.

So you have two monitors but when you play wow you only play on one at 1920x1080? Please dont tell me you are playing wow in windowed mode and streching it on both monitors..

Well it's not SLI, its only 1 card, it has the SLI built in right?

SLI refers to dual Nvidia GPUs for either separate or both on the same pcb

Does this look right? Or is this not using the SLI properly with the card??

on the actual card it has 2 DVI ports that im plugged into, the adapters dont fit in the one thats the 2nd from the left on this screen shot.

The SAMSUNG is my main monitor, that one on the A side is by itself basicly on the card, but it has a slightly diff port, its missing like 4 little holes for the pins on the DVI adapter

download GPU-Z http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/ to clarify.

If it is then will need to find out how to disable one of the gpus as wow is not properly coded for sly/xfire and in some cases single cards/disabling SLI/CF will outperform.

If its not. Check your bios and make sure the pci lanes are set at correct bandwidth rates etc. Look at your manual or search google regarding your motherboard for references that may help you navigate where you need to go in the bios to configure sli.
