Well I owned a Voodoo2 years (feels like ages) back and SLI was really tempting at that time. I'm feeling somewhat of a drool factor this SLI-time around as well.

I think itīll be interesting to see how far the OC:ers will push SLI-setups when they'll be able to attain them. The means as of how to apply cooling and power will probably impress me more than the resulting benchmark scores. If I remember correctly there were no heatsinks or cooling fans on the Voodoo2-cards back in the old SLI-days...
