Most LCD TVs, if not all, compared to LCD monitors, have a low native resolution. You wouldn't need SLI for that. Even a 32" with a resolution of 1366 x 768, wouldn't need SLI.

You really start to see benefits of SLI after 1680 x 1050.

ok well I added everything up and the price is too much...almost 2k...im trying to keep it under or around $1300

so for the sake of being on the more cheap side, and for the sake of finally becoming clear on the subject, I ask again, 1 video card for $410 or 2 for less than that? Performance wise (on a 23" monitor) would the 1x 8800GTX out perform 2x of another EVGA card??
