I just recently bought and installed this game. I am experiencing a lot of lag, like it's running real slow. This however is when I run my game in full-screen mode at 1680 x 1050. When I run in window mode at 1024x768 however, it's real smooth and everything. It just seems when I go full-screen and have to change the resolution it just goes slow.

These are my current specs on my computer. Do I need any hardware changes?

DUAL ASUS EN6600GT/TOP/TD/128M Geforce 6600GT 128MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card

AMD Athlon 64 3500+, 2.2GHz Socket 939 Processor

ASUS A8N SLI DELUXE SOCKET 939 MOTHERBOARD

CORSAIR XMS 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Unbuffered Dual Channel Kit

Enermax 650W PS EG651P-VD (power supply)

Hitachi 120GB hard drive 7200rpm ( IDE )

Any help appreciated, thanks.

Congrats this is the first NWN2 post!

Currently everyone's waiting for the first bug patch out of Bioware, as far as can be determined it was written and play tested for 1024x768 but of course they've put in an upper limit of 1680x1050 and who wouldn't want to play at that res if their machine can support it.  

Problem is currently the best fps reported at maxed out res is about 15 and that's on overclocked top end machines.  Wouldn't expect your SLI'd dual 6600GT's to be able to keep up with that (even assuming the latest Forceware drivers).  Bioware are likely to fix the resolution sensitivity but I think currently you may be pushing your graphics cards to run at the resolution you want with an FPS you'll enjoy.  Problem is partially your hardware but think it is mainly with Bioware.
