The cards aren't shoddy (in fact, they're almost always the fastest at the time of release), but in my opinion, the use of that technology is. Instead of improving efficiency, they paste two gpu's together and call it a new one. Not good in my opinion.
Lol, and I can't stop looking at your AVY.

They are great for people with smaller form factor computers or people who only have/want one PCI-e slot used for graphics.
I voted No
Heat issues, power issues, and driver issues, to name a few. And I think anyone in the market for a dual GPU setup likely has the money for an SLI mobo and a big case.
