It can be a good thing in those situations, of which you pointed out. There are other options though, like selling your old card, or using EVGA's step up program.
agreed... some fps can't be reached without SLi, such as playing games with 16x QAA... i've tried it... and i've been manhandled in some games... and i know a gtx won't play it without stutter either... it's just so demanding... at least at 1680x1050 and higher...

but 16x QAA... do you really need it? lol.. i know i do... cuz i CAN tell the difference
