Default Re: SLI Really worth it?

It's too early to get SLi at the moment, it's unstable and can cause problems, most games don't support it and you won't benefit anymore than having just a 6800GT in your rig. More money than sense prevails though ... [sigh...]

Certainly not me. I wouldn't be able to afford it.
