If that's a G92 8800GTS yes it will. My 8800GT plays it almost all Ultra'd out, no AA at 1680x1050. The benchmark gave me about 35FPS avg IIRC.

I am going to guess those are 512MB GTS cards which means they are G92 so you'll be fine with just one. It's probably ~10% better performance than my 8800GT and coupled w/your OC'd E8400 you should be able to crank FC2 no problem. What resoltuion are you playing at? Also, have you updated to SP1, that might actually help too. SLI is supposed to be supported and the few reviews I read about it show very good results, almost double the frames.

Sorry not much sympathy for you there. Yup legit Windows. Vista is good, just bye it, otherwise you get to suffer from other problems like this. :)

if you want windows 7, try downloading the beta... you can test it out for a bit if you have an extra HDD laying around somewhere
