We were having a similar problem with two GeForce 8800 Ultras.

It would bluescreen at various times with Vista x64.

Have you tried the latest BETA drivers? http://www.nvidia.com/object/winvista_x64_163.44.html

I noticed in a previous post that Nivida has had problems with their vista drivers. Try the beta drivers that Radium posted to

The 64-bit Vista SLI driver are absolutely horrible. I wouldn't even try to get such a setup to work. Disable one of the cards until nVIDIA gets their SLI drivers sorted out.

EDIT: At the same time you could put a little pressure on nVIDIA by letting them know, in no unclear terms, what you think about their driver situation.

There's always Multi-monitor support until they update the drivers for SLI :thumbsup:
