Default idea good or bad?

hey anyone know how i can hook up two computers together? i want to have lan parties with it but i also want it to think together. both have sli mobos 4x7800gtx cards and 8x1g ram. is there a way i can hook them up together to make extreme power there in two seperate cases. and they all have 4800 dual cores. is this even a good idea? i got a really big screen for them and its pretty cool. played games on one so now wonder wat its like with ultimate power. i have 2 lcd monitors hooked up right now to each of them and have two more. so i was hoping to make a seriously cool machine.

No I don't think that it is possible.

And the idea is tempting, but there is no real change. Sure u will get more FPS but u won't be able to notice any difference.
