Oh boy... where do I even start? I think good question to start is how many different games do you actually play? I (not bragging) have over 350 games I bought on steam and none of them are Indie crap just regular games that I bought over the last 6-7 years. Do you wanna guess the % of them that support SLI with good scaling?
Another factor on how useless SLI is the fact that to often games come out without SLI support.
Just recent games released without SLI support: Fallout 4, Doom, Total War Warhammer DX12, SC2 Legacy of the Void, Division, and any DX12 game etc..
This month August we have 3 Huge releases: No Mans Sky, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, World of Warcraft Legion.
NONE of this games support SLI. Good Game Well Played in my book.
Also Finishing move here is 2 of headlines from Nvidia SLI forum I sow on the first page:
The Division SLI profile is BROKEN - Massive pc freezings when SLI on
XCOM 2 SLI temporarily disables when units take action
SLI is (in my humble opinion) for people that play benchmarks and brag about numbers.

Still, multi GPUs have come a long way, from both companies. I'd like to try again, preferably without my money being the one being spent
I know you're being sarcastic, but I haven't had any troubles with this HD 6950 or the HD 5870 that preceded it (the 5870 itself, completely different story, although I blame Sapphire for that).
I didn't with nVidia either, for all it's worth. Single or dual-headed.
You almost guessed but it was earlier I had 2 7950GT
I think it was the very first budget card you could SLI and later I listened to people and tried 780GTX SLI.
