    SLI=Nvidia
    Crossfire=AMD

    Besides that, they're pretty much the exact same.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.

    What Aborted said, but I think AMD is better than Nvidia, so get the Crossfire
    Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken.

    They're both basically pointless. One GPU will do just fine. I'd rather have a newer $400 card than 2 $200 cards with all of the micro stutter issues. Not to mention the need for a better power supply, as well as cooling.

    SLI is Nvidias tech
    Crossfire is AMD

    They both do essentially the same thing.
    Both have bridges. segerydrth

    The point of Crossfire and SLi is to basically combine the power of the multiple GPUs however
    people think that two GPU=2x the power, but in reality it scales horrible.
    The more GPU you tack onto the build the less effective it will be the last one will be.
    For example GPU1=100% power GPU2=70% GPU3=40% GPU4=20%
    So as you can tell you dont get 2x 3x or 4x the power.
    The best thing to do instead of busting $$ on 4 GPU is to spend all that on one top of the line GPU.

    I need to find a citation on the GPU thing though sorry.
