No, if you are that desperate to want 2 which no GAME REQUIRES......then get one. One will perform like god....so why get 2? Do you want there to be 2 gods? That no good

SLI is just plain pointless to me.
I wouldn't do it, i'm happy with what agp8x can provide for now.

500$ will get you a damn nice card on pci-e, but to do sli would be TWICE that much, and thats only the video hardware! Only worthwhile if you have lots of money.
