    SLI=Nvidia
    Crossfire=AMD

    Besides that, they're pretty much the exact same.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

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

    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.
