300% increase over what? For there to be an increase, it has to be compared to something......

Wow, what happened to this place, so much misinformation in this thread.

SLI will increase your performance anywhere from 30% to 80%, depending on the game. 8800GTX SLI sure gave twice the performance of one card.

Quad-SLI gives miserable performance, nowhere EVEN CLOSE to 300%. Try more like 100% for 400% the price.

when I went to that link he posted I figured it out. TheEnd's computer is a alienware. I am not sure if everyone else knew.
