now are you honestly gonna say your gonna that the extra cash is worth the extra cash for that 1.5 FPS
His comment was not only referring to this piece of hardware, and I agree with him.

People say SLI is stupid, not good when it comes to price for performance, etc. But the added performance of SLI is supposed to be excessive in comparison to using one video card. It's the added performance that is significant, not the face that it costs two times more and delivers only 50% performance increase.

Like the P35 chipsets, I believe X38 chipsets only support Crossfire.
