SLI is not all its cracked up to be, not for everyone. Its awesome for people who play games that have been out for a while, but for many games, it give no advantage. Why? Because the way that SLI is designed, the 2nd card just sits there unless Nvidia has written SLI support in for that specific game.

So can you get the SLI-benefit in a beta game? not likely. It makes me remember the old days of ATI - Waiting on drivers.

Don't get me wrong - the best gaming rigs out there are SLI, but unless Nvidia has taken time to write in driver support for your second monster-card, that second card will be taking 5.

-Nvidia was nice enough to update their drivers recently, but the last time they released a video-card driver was almost 6 months before.

Let me tell you 1xFX5200 will play Doom3, what matters is your opinion of how it "plays"

I can't find it, but I used to have a screenshot of Doom 3 on a 3Dfx Savage. It's all pixelated...like in Doom 1 & 2.
