lol. SLI is the use of 2 graphics cards in one computer. Ya it souds cool and great an all, but its not really worth the money for the small performance it gives, in my opinion.

Its mainly for the "Graphic Whores"... What i mean by that, is you can have all the performance w/ the best graphics possible from your system. This new technology will come into play later.

SLI is Nvidia's version of having graphics cards work in tandom for improved performance. IMO there will always be a single card solution that will play any game at that time on high settings so SLI isn't needed (for gaming). We'll soon see ATI's version call "Crossfire" that will have two cards working together.
