Here's a good link for BIOS with easy explanation on what it does:

As for SLI, what better way to learn the newest technology in graphics innovation then through the Nvidia website itself? Here's the link on what is SLI at http://www.slizone.com/content/slizone/learn.html

In a nutshell, SLI is the process of using 2 SLI capable video cards to share their GPUs which in sense, increases performance. Cool, huh?
