yeah there are several different performance modes for sli. i have yet to mess with all of them, but i have tried a few. the split screen rendering impressed me. you can also set them to render alternate frames.
jseber i would be interested in info about the mods you mentioned.

lol jseber should submit his holy crap sli 8800gtx? doh, thats some disposable income.
i think its funny though that everyone says sli is useless....lots of times i get better framerates than a single 8800gts. i get close to the 3d06 score of a gts 640 if i overclock them a little.
and no i didnt pay full price for one of them those of you who dont know.
if you have 300 dollars to spend (260 after MIR lmao) and not 400, then 2 x 7900gs can perform excellently. of course, it would be a better idea to save more $ to get at least the 640mb gts (i'd get the 768 gtx thats just me cos thats how i roll lol), but if you have a single 7900gs and an SLI board....7900gs' are cheap right now. cheaper than buying a new graphics card. if clocked high enough, two of them go up against the big boys.

gts 768??? don't u mean gtx 768mb or gts 640mb... but thats awesome, since the evga 7900gs KO was just 100$ 3 weeks ago, ppl could have gotten performance of a 640mb gts for 160$ less...

does my gts perform close to a gtx at 675/975? i think that a score of 11k is impressive considering it was only 97xx when i first got it..adn this was superclocked at 575/850 (i bought a reg, but got a superclocked)

Futuremark - ORB - Result Analyzer

this is with my cpu at almost 3ghz, my ram under speed at 3-3-3-9 timings, and a small overclock on my cards. woot.
this is the only one i have saved. i can do my overclocks and let er rip again iffun yall need more proof...i will score a right at 9K.
lol go to the "comparisons " tab and see which one i am.
