so mb in the future (i wish), for the second card buyer intending to use it for SLI and crossfire purpose, they can give us some kind of discount, like 1/2off or even 25% off...
then the story would be different....
that wouldnt work because i would buy two and get the one half off and sell it for full price on ebay MUAHAHAHAHA

well...mb they can make the 2nd card specifically made and used for SLI and crosfire only...
like theres no DVI-out whatsoever or something...
then u have to use it as SLI....and u can sell it but u only get what u paied for..which is half the price...
but u know what, why they make an another type of card just to lose money...
not gonna happen....
but hey, u can always wait 5 years to get good 1 cheap!

Default SLI+High Resolutions

I plan on buying a Gateway 21" FPD2185W (1680 x 1050 resolution) for my PC. Would SLI be applicable here or still a waste of money?

Quickest one I could find:-

------------------------------

To add a general comment to this thread (and in a seemingly contradictory manner to the general opinion here):-

It's worth bearing in mind that a multi-GPU configuration such as SLI and Crossfire will be CPU-bound to a various extent, in particular when running alongside the aging single-core CPU architecture. Remember that.
