I assume you mean two cards working on the same wu...

If you have a situation (usually happens when you first set it up) where 2 gpu's are folding the same wu, stop one client go into that client's folder and delete the work folder the FAHcore and the queue.dat files... then restart the client... it should download a new and hopefully different core... if it downloads the same wu again... delete the files from the other gpu client... Once you get different wu's on each card they will continue doing so... at least that has been my experience...

How are all your i7s getting that much PPD? Am i missing something?

Mines an i7 920 at 3.8 HT on and i get about 10k, -smp -advmethods flags on.

How else can i improve it?

nope im not, the dam 5970 eats the cpu. so i tested both and the CPU only gives me the optimal PPD.

Just noticed, we are 100k points behind for third place, in 24h points.

To get the big points on an i7 you need to fold -bigadv WU's, regular SMP2 won't do it...

No, you would need to use a VM if you want to fold -bigadv units. You can't do it with the Windows SMP client.
