I'm pretty sure those aren't sli, and they are different cards anyway...

to have sli you have to have the exact same two cards...

here's an example of a sli card:

scroll down, notice the sli/yes

Whether it's crossfire or SLI they both are yesterdays news and not needed. Use your money to buy a better card or just one of the best and upgrade something else.
