    Hey McG (and anyone else),

    You running Oblivion in SLI? I get the Windoze start button flickering if I
    play in SLI...as you can imagine I ain't a happy chappie.

    That was the optimization nVidia talked about...

    Jokes aside, have you tried forcing a different SLI mode (alternate-frame
    versus split-frame, etc.)?

    I'm super new to SLI - how do I go about that? At the moment I think it's
    alternate frame...
    Thanks for your help...

    OK! I worked out how to enable this, and I have tried all the different
    modes - both AFR modes, SFR, SLI8x and SLI16x, even single GPU rendering and
    of course auto-select.

    I still get the flicker!

    Unless...*goes away to fiddle* AH-HA! The problem appears to be the
    particular skin I'm using with WindowsBlinds. I disabled it, and the
    flickering went away - the nVidia control panel also started asking me 'The
    profile...is being used by multiple applications...' that it's apparently
    meant to when you change settings to a profile.

    However, I've just turned my skin back on, nVidia still asks me to change
    the profile if I make any modifications and the flickering has gone away!

    Strange...I really don't know why it suddenly decided to start working, but
    I'm happy.

    I play oblivion in either single gpu or SLI. runs slightly choppy in
    action sequences with single gpu at times. SLI does great. Er, I don't
    use Windows blinds or that kind of thing yet. Not in x64.

    SLI is great. When I want to get into a long session of one of my games, I
    enable SLI multi GPU render and enjoy the smoothest gameplay I've ever seen
    :) FEAR really benefits from SLI!!!
