9800 GTX Sli Low fps on CoDMW2?

Well i recently noticed that i can max out everything fine in cod Modern warfare 2, (except two of the texture quality options) and can maintain a steady 90 fps and it will never drop below 76 fps but whenever set all the texture quality settings to Extra i will drop as low as 21 fps sometimes but if i put the texture quality setting to the follow it never drops below 76fps:

Texture Resolution: Extra
Normal Map Resolution: High
Specular Map Resolution: High

Is anyone else having this problem i could put all the Resolution settings on Extra in cod4. I would think two 9800 GTX's can still pull this off.

Mobo Driver ver: 15.25
GFX Driver ver: 182.08
Anti-Aliasing: 4x
Anisotropic filtering: None
Resolution: 1680x1050

I can also max out the AA to 16xQ and the Anisotropic Filtering to 16x when the Map resolution options are on High and when Texture Resolution is on Extra.

Hi there, i'm currently maxxing it out on my GTX260's in SLI but frames do drop but only on the Scrapyard map when looking in a specific place. maybe somehing to do with coding?
Updated to the newest 195 driver and it also has gpu accelerated flash cant wait to try that out : ) But anyway nVidia did a very nice job with the 195 driver, theres a lot more flexibility in the control panel. I am able to use upto 8x AA and 4x Anisotropic filtering with all resolutions settings on Extra now. Lowest FPS drop I've seen is 47 with those settings but usually when a lot of explosions happen. I still get the Windows Vista is low on memory message but its really not low at all. Could it be referring to my 512mb's of vram possibly?
That's odd, I get max fps at 92 with all texture settings at extra at 1680x1050 and 2x AA and that with only a stock OC 8800GT
New drivers and download the SLI enhancement patch too, stupid question.. you are using a SLi bridge too correct?
Yup im using the sli bridge. I just noticed something strange today though when i opened Everest today it seems my voltages on some of my rails on the power supply are dropped below the specified voltage.
in this picture i noticed the voltage on my 12v rail is only 11.62 volts, I remember a few months back it used to be at 11.99 volts.

maybe my power supply is part of the issue?

I think it's something to do with your vram. I have a 4870 with 512 mb vram, and it stutters like mad sometimes, but if I just turn it down a bit, I get really good framerates

@B7ADE, max fps doesn't matter that much- average is much more important
