I agree with Bkolk about the HD and video card.

SLI (Scalable Link Interface) is when you have two Nvidia (Crossfire for ATI) video cards. You can use two different ones (of the same number..eg. 275 superclocked, 275 regular) but it will clock it down to the slowest of the two. So it is best to have two of the exact same.

Edit: Forgot to mention that you can have more than two cards.
