    Anyone rigged up two v/cards yet?

    Is it amazing or no change, just interested, could be fun for the next PC. I imagine getting two cheaper v/card could theoretically be better than one nvidia ultra.

    You need a motherboard with NForce SLi chipset with 2 X 18 PCI Express graphics ports. In all benches, the 6600GT SLi config was about on par with the 6800 GT...at lower resolutions. At higher resolutions and AA and AF applied, the single 6800 GTs were faster IIRC. However, Anandtech, Tom's Hexus and Tech Report have all investigated the performance and you could sreach there for those articles.

    ANy good article links on SLI? Is there PCX SLI? I have a single PCX 6800 Ultra. I'd be wiling to pop for an nforce SLI board and another PCX 6800 U if I'd see a huge performance increase and only if there is a PCX SLI Nforce board. Also, has anyone who has an SLI setup reported seeing a line, or overlap between the screen halves?

    SLI RAWKS actually ... EVERY game there is i can play at full video resolutions and im sure i could also play them at much higher pixels with a CRT monitor at full blast as well with ZERO lag or delay.
