All is fine here under Windows 7 x64 RTM.

Is this a retail game? Or are you using some downloaded, cracked copy?

Also make sure your video drivers are fully up to date. If it still doesn't work, maybe try disabling SLI.

Why do people ask for help with pirated games?
You did not buy it so figure it out on your own.
