Yeah, 20% is too low a number, or we're just not understanding what dknight meant. The figures usually come around 60%-80% for a SLI system versus the single card. Considering the price is always 100% higher (duh), it's obvious SLI is not worth it.
But as King X13 said, the original poster already said he didn't want SLI. He just asked if it was a good idea to get SLI parts anyway.
So, konvick619, did you read my post above?
