Yes. I've run my m9700 with the SLI cards at 1920 x 1200 with ultra high settings and it ran very well. Usually when you hit ultra high settings, it sets the resolution down to 1024 x 768 or 1280 x 1024 and it runs flawlessly, but I kicked it back up to the top res just to check it out.
The 256 and 512 cards in SLI should perform similarly. The extra onboard memory only comes into play at very high resolutions and settings, so I'm not really sure it'll make that big a difference in current games. SLI halves the load also between two cards, so I'm really not sure the extra memory makes much difference at all.
Oblivion is amazing on the m9700... Here's a screenshot sized down for the web...
