Have you disabled your SLI? Also, you need a vga dummy plug or an extra monitor to connect to your second GPU. once you have vista thinking there is a second monitor connected to your second GPU, extend the desktop to the second fake monitor. You'll need to reboot for vista to initialize the second monitor. Download the gpu console client and SMP client for your CPU. I just run the clients from folders right off my desktop. Get the 2 GPU clients running first, then worry about the CPU client. Make sure you choose 2 different machine ID's for each GPu client and activate the -advmethods flag and assign the first card to -gpu 0 and the second to -gpu 1.

That should get you started. There's some great info in this folding section too. Let me know if you need more to get you started.
