I have the same mobo as yours> First overclock ur cpu. Make sure you have an aftermarket cooler. If not you can still push it to 3.4ghz. 2nd I have my GPU's 1&3 also for better cooling. Make sure SLi is enabled in the control panel. Its not by default. Lastly Black Ops isnt very demanding so your prob not gonna see performance improvements unless you try Bad Company 2 or Crysis or Metro 2033. Enjoy : )

Tuniq is a decent cooler. You should be able to OC it up to 4GHz at the very least. As for Physx, I usually leave it on auto. Seems to do job just fine at most games I play.

Make sure to adjust the CPU Ratio setting to 21 since you dont have an unlocked CPU and up the 167 to 181 to get 3.8ghz which is fine for anyone. Good luck
