SLI = Scalable Linking Interface. Basically it allows two cards to render a single image either through one card rendering one frame, the other card rendering the next, or each card rendering half of a frame. Results for SLI arent really 100% over what you would see with one card, they are really closer to maybe 130-150% over what you would see with one card. SLI is Nvidia's dual card solution, while Crossfire is ATI's. Currently the only reason for SLI/Crossfire is if you have a massive monitor. For the most part it is not worth the money...

Ermm, well, a 17" monitor really isnt that big. Im surprised that your 7900GS isnt able to push an acceptable frame rate at 1240X1020... I mean you could go SLI, but I think you would be better off getting another gig of ram, that would help your frame rate as much as another card, especially in games like BF2 and such.
