I have read reports from a plethora of people who adopted SLi in the past and vowed to never do it again.
Another option when considering SLI is to sell the GTX 280 and get the HD 4870 x2. I believe this is better solution for running 2 GPU also cheaper plus I don't see why new mobo should be needed in that case.

I do visit many forums and don't see any reporting about bad microstuttering on the HD 4870 x2 card at least not from the real users.
