Sorry to bump an old post, but I have a similar setup and can't get SLI to work for me. Using the newer drivers (306.97) I get intense flickering, although I can tell SLI is working (almost 100% FPS increase, but unplayable). If I jump back to old drivers (275.33) the fickering goes away, but FPS is the same as 1 card. I've tried the latest betas, but they crash GW2 completely.

What NVIDIA drivers are people using for their 460 SLI setup?

Use the new 310.57 BETA drivers. They fix the flickering (unless one of your GPUs is bad/overheating)

Also, make sure that you put the mode for SLi on Alternate Frame Render 1.

Thanks for the quick response! I can't find any 310.57 (only 310.54). Do you know when they were released?

EDIT: When I install the 310.54 and switch to Alternate Frame Render 1, after logon the screen goes black and it locks up. I have to CTRL-ALT-DELETE to kill GW2.

Did you do a clean installation? If so, it sounds like you might have a defective GPU. Try switching the position of your 460s. Put the bottom card on the top, top on the bottom. See if that resolves it.

Yeah, I think he meant 310.54. That's the most recent beta release on Geforce.com.

I did swap the cards and long story short, now they are working. Thanks! Note: I did need to leave the SLI settings on auto to get the boost in performance. Alternate Frame Render 1 seemed to be the same as running on 1 GPU.

Just doubled my framerate in GW2, thanks!!
