SLI Or Not?

This Inquirer article says that new nVidia cards retailing for \$199 will be SLI-capable.

(In English, that means you could hook up two video cards and make them act as one.)

We have a few questions for you.

(For this poll, if you’d be willing to spend more for two higher-end cards, just answer “a” for questions 1 and 2)

1) Assume the following: Assume that buying two SLI-capable video cards will cost you \$375 and an SLI-capable mobo will cost you \$25 more than one that isn’t. Assume that SLI performance is 70% better than that of a single SLI card, and 10% better than that of a single \$375 video card.

What do you do?

a) I buy it.
b) I buy one SLI-capable card and figure I’ll get the second card and/or the mobo the mobo later on.

c) I wouldn’t be interested.

2) Assume the following: Assume that buying two SLI-capable video cards will cost you \$275 and an SLI-capable mobo will cost you \$25 more than one that isn’t. Assume that SLI performance is 70% better than that of a single SLI card, and 10% better than that of a single \$275 video card, but 10% worse than a \$375 card.

What do you do?

a) I buy it.
b) I buy one SLI-capable card and figure I’ll get the second card and/or the mobo the mobo later on when I need it/it’s cheaper.

c) I wouldn’t be interested.

Finally:

3) If you answered “I wouldn’t be interested” to both questions one and two, is price the main reason why you’re not?

a) Yes
b) No
