My System Specs

Default 2 x GTX580 and my fps drops to 35-40 ?!

Last weekend i upgraded my rig to accomadate 2 x EVGA GTX 580's, as my last mobo(Asus M4A89TD Pro) would not support SLI, so I bought the Asus Crosshair V Formula. So far, so good.
I also use EVGA Precision X primarily because I'm not 'Bill Gates Jr.' when it comes to overclocking etc. I'm a PC Gamer, if I could get it done with a hamster on a treadmill, i would.
My problem is that I set the Frame Rate Target to 70 fps, click 'Enable', click 'Sync', set fan speed to 'Auto', it's seeing both cards, I have the SLI enabled on the Nvidia Control panel so the Precision X is seeing both cards.
Then.... I load up BF3, set the gfx to 'Ultra' ( the single 580 used to handle this fairly well as long as I set the Antialiasing no higher than x2) and w/ the onscreen monitoring on, I see my fps drop to 35-40 sometimes !
I thought 2 cards should EASILY keep me over 60 fps.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
