Yes, I did indeed read your first post but did not realise that

meant that you only buy from one retailer outlet being pc case gear! Perhaps you could get them to order it for you!

I really must work on my Australian vernacular, they are coming over to fail to regain the Ashes shortly and I don't want this kind of mix up when I am winding them up then! biggrin.gif

The VRAM is not shared, actually the VRAM is mirrored between cards. That is why there is only 2GB available on 2x 2GB cards in SLI. If you look at your VRAM usage in SLI, you would see that each card is using the same amount of VRAM at all times. But ultimately you are right in that no matter how many cards there are in SLI, you will only have access to the amount of VRAM a single card has.
