Default How is SLI Scaling on GTX 200 GPU's?

Hey guys, I have been rocking a single Geforce GTX 260-216 GPU for well over a year now and the thing still largely meets my gaming demands, however some titles like Metro 2033 have left me wanting more. I recently got the chance to buy a second 260-216 for $120, which is something im strongly considering. Im curious what SLI scaling is on average though? I know for certain games (like Crysis) Nvidia has managed to get upwards of 90% scaling, but what about games like Starcraft2, Left 4 Dead, etc? Is scaling on average more around 50% or 80%?

Scaling is very good in most games. One of my 260s is clocked higher than the other, so sometimes I get > 100% scaling when compared to the single lower clocked card

Its great, going from one to two was impressive imo. two to three and its a bit harder to see the scaling at 1920x1200 or lower, at least for me it was.
