edit: if 2 2GB 285's then you will have 2GB effective vram. SLI is not limited to any memory capacity.
Biggie has the 2GB version.
If spending upwards of 500$ on a card, I would want it to have more than 896MB of VRAM. But that's just me. 896 will be a bottleneck in the near future.
SLI is transparent for me.. works nearly as hassle-free as a single GPU and scales well. It's necessary, for me, with games like Crysis and Clear Sky that need more GPU power to run well.
