sli is overated ONLY if you are using a medium resolution screen...
if you are going high res 24 inch or above, it totally makes a difference.
there is no doubt about that. if you are using a 17 (or even 19 or 22) inch lcd, yeah...you dont need it....lol but what is need against want...?

not really any benefit of sli and two monitors.
unless they are both of med-high rez (like 22-24").
you cna build a script to switch sli on and off on a single monitor for gaming, but...hassle hassle hassle.
you shouldnt need 2 cards for screens that size. go for the quad amigo.
