Have you set your nvidia controll panal game profile to use sli in alt frame rendering 2 for 3dmark 06?
Just that will get you a fair increase.

If you havent then :

Open nvidia control panel
Goto manage 3d settings
Click on program settings tab
scroll down and set sli performance mode to alt frame rendering 2
also set multi display / single gpu acelleration to single display performance mode.

That should help

that actually gave me a worse score. i thought my score was fine, but someone said i should be scoring higher than the 16k marks, like 19k. so im trying to figure out if this is a good mark or if something is holding me back. is it vista? should i diable the features it has? any suggestions welcome.

have you overclocked your cards yet?

go check out forums.nvidia.com there is a 3dmark06 hall of fame in the "pimp my rig" section, look for simalar setups.

These are all Win XP scores, which is where you would be with XP, with vista your score drops, so subtract about 1000 from each one and I'd think that is where you should be....
