Well you can jsut buy one vga card then later on buy another one. Its really just furture proofing basically. Nothing more if you want your system to last with the games you play and other things you do then go SLI. If you dont care then get non SLI mobo. The pci card issue yes its less but are you really going to use all the pci cards?

you can use that 80 bucks to go from a 6800GT to a 7800GT

or SLi mobo and just two graphics card

or non sli mobo and really good graphics card
or dfi nf4 ultra-D and mod it
