Question Crossfire & SLI? One question on that...

Hello everyone, I have a quick question for those who know their stuff about graphics cards and all that.

Why doesn't memory increase when you put two cards in crossfire?

Which memory are you referring to? Graphics memory or MOBO RAM?

When you put two cards together, each card has it's own GDDR RAM. Not that it shares the RAM of both. It's not like motherboard RAM.
