When at the menu screen I get ~15fps and when I actually enter the game, it drops to ~1-5fps. I tried turning physx off to no avail. Batman AA is the only game I'm having issues with.

Something to note:
I just added my second 560ti and am now running nvidia surround resolution 6010x1080 (shouldn't adding a 2nd video card give me MORE fps? =P) Before adding the second card, the game ran fine.

My computer specs are as follows:

CPU:Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 4.0ghz
Mobo:ASUS SABERTOOTH P67
Video Card:2 x GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit
RAM:G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB
Power Supply:Corsair 750W

Adding a second card will not necessarly give you more fps,it alows for more eye candy (aa,af,etc). Are you using the latest drivers for the 500 series? You might have to turn off aa,bloom &ambient occulsion to get better fps. With 2 cards of only 1 gb each is pushing them to the max w/3 monitors. When I had only 2 GTX 470s in surround @ 6030x1080 both cards would be at 99% usage ! If you have either evga percision or msi afterburner installed put memory usage & load onscreen to see what the cards are putting out. I have 3 470s in sli now,no aa or v-sync & will still drop tp low 30's in scarecrow nightmares (but it looks so good). On the nvidia site they recommend 5760x1080 for batman & all other games in surround w/a max of 4aa. I've also been monitoring cpu usage (Q9550 o/c to 3.4) to 68% & ddr2 memory up tp 70% useage.
