    Just a quick question, does it have a 200% increase of performance (in graphics cards only obviously) to have two graphics cards in SLi, or is there slightly less?

    Just something that I've been wondering recently. :rolleyes:

    Up to 80% faster apparently? although this isnt always the case!

    Can be anyware between less performance on some and 80%, thats about it. Plus its only really needed at 1600x1200 and above.

    Not true - even with low levels of AA /AF at 1366*768 ( HiDef TV res) there was stuttering on an Opty@2.5ghz, 2Gb with a 7800GT whilst playing SS2 and with even more recent games it would only get more noticable

    But in performance terms, you will never get a doubling of it, more likely about 60% at best
