Default Dual SLI. Worth it?

I'm thinking of running Dual SLI after I get my CPU Hs.

I'd be running 2 GeForce GTS 250's in Dual SLI. (Can pick one up fairly cheap from Newegg for $130) Is it worth it?

I would say so. You get the power of a very new GPU for a smaller price.

Okay. I'll plan for that then. Maybe looking at adding a fan port or 2 on my case also. We'll see how everything plays out
