I completely agree-scaling and stability in SLI for 8800/260/280/275/285 series or crossfire with the ATI 4870/4890's has really improved in the last 16 months. The scaling and stability on my 4870's has been fantastic and they are so cheap right now. The i7 platform has also helped to make SLI/crossfire a good option.
Plus its looks way better having 2 cards rather than one

Nowadays adding another like card is close to doubling the performance.
