Yeah also done that. It does help but the problem still occurs.

I've found out that disabling vsync helps a lot, as the problem actually halves my FPS. If I'm getting 70-80FPS, it'll only go to around 40 instead of 30. It was also happening less often. In online though, it's still pretty bad...

I thought you knew this, but GTA 4 is not SLI compatible. It isn't Crossfire compatible either.
I also have a GTX 760, but EVGA SC. I have my framerate capped at 30, and the settings maxed. Without the cap I'd be looking at 40 average. When the fps drops from 50 to 30 it causes annoying lag. Sometimes it drops to 20-24. Capping it at 30 definitely made playing this game a lot better.
To cap the fps open Notepad and type:

-refreshrate 31 (it seems to cap the framerate 1 number below what you actually put. So putting 30 will cap it at 29.)
-framelimit 1

Be sure to have vsync enabled in the game menu. Once you have this commandline you cannot change the settings, including resolution. If you do it will break the commandline until the game is restarted.
Remember to name the text document commandline and not commandline.txt.

Yeah thanks bro. I had been told that the newer GTA updates/NVIDIA drivers had fixed this compatibility. The sad thing now is that I'm getting frame caps in BF3 too and I get shadow flickering in both games. Crysis 3 with Vsync also gets frame capping. At this point I feel like returning the two cards and getting a GTX 780. I'm sort of sick of it all, especially for $700.
