SLI: Just say no.
We need to collect Flying Fox's most coherent rants on this subject into a sticky somewhere.

Your latest rant didn't mention all of the reasons why the "buy one now, get one later" scheme is a failure. You mentioned the unavailability of the EOL'ed 6800GT, but you didn't mention obsolesence. By the time that you're ready to get a second card to make things run faster, there's a new card available that not only runs faster, but also includes additional features and capabilities not included with your old card. You're not going to want to buy a second obsolete card to be (a little bit) faster (in those games that benefit from SLI), you're going to want the latest generation card to get more capabilities.
