. Which holds true if you think about what SLI'ing does at higher resolutions. I usually play at 1280x1024 though. I like to think SLI'ing will still make a difference at that resolution.
Well it will still make a difference at any resolution but the impact is greater. Just look at how your FPS drops if you jump resolutions. Take this as a example. Just pulled the number out of the top of my head here but the theory is the same.
1280X1024 Single Card 75FPS 1280X1024 SLI 85 FPS
1680X1050 Single Card 45FPS 1680X1050 SLI 70FPS
Again thats just a example but it helps keep the FPS higher at bigger resolutions. At any rate you'll get a FPS jump but possibly not as high at lower resolutions.
