My System Specs

I actually get a few fps less in benchmarks (Metro 2033, Just cause 2, 3dmark11,Crysis 2 mp)than I do with the just single 570. Even if I crank up the physx options where available.

The unigine Heaven benchmark really tanks with 2 cards, 42 fps with the 260 and 63fps without.

My guess is there is just too much bus overhead to make it worthwhile. The unigine bench is just plain confused.
It's because you set CUDA to the 260 for all games. You can download the demo for Mafia 2 and run the benchmark tool in that game and you should see great fps increase with the PhysX option for the 260 compared to just the 570 doing all the work. Leave your CUDA setting alone and try benchmarking again.
