Default SLI 9800GTX/9800GTX+ Problem

Ok so far this set up has pretty much worked out as planned, seems to run games better then a single and from what I can tell SLI is enabled and working fine. My problem stems from Gears of war. I have all graphics cranked to max at 1650x1080 the monitors native res. Problem is even though im getting the capped 62fps Im getting all kinds of video tearing/graphical stuttering. the game runs well other then that it just seems like maybe SLI is causing a rendering problem? ive tried all 3 spliting profiles and they havent really made any difference.

EDIT: Disabling SLI does not eliviate this problem nor do I see a loss in FPS, just stays at 62fps. Im also running this on an eVGA 790I Ftw Digital PWM mobo with 4 gigs of DDR3 running at 1866mhz and an E7400 @ 3.6ghz.

Is vertical sync on? Turn that off... that crap screws with me and I'm sure many others.

I tried on and off and it made ZERO difference one way or the other, I have never had much luck with this setting.

what a horibly coded game, I dont even know why I bought it, its not even that fun... No matter what graphic setting you choose you HAVE to restart the game for it to work?? wow I just do not like this UT3 engine in the least.

Did you expect that much from a console port?

I dunno, everyone said it was tons better on the PC and that it was more then just a simple port, im not seeing it.. its a tad better then Assassins creed, atleast we dont have to map keys to bottons...
