My System Specs


I would say the only way the OP statements holds true, in a round about way, is if you look at the performance of a single modern $200ish card VS your average monitor today. A single 4870 or Nvidia equivalent will allow you to run most games at max settings on a 22inch LCD (1680x1050), therefore SLI or crossfire is not needed or obsolete for most people because you don't need SLI/crossfire to get playable frame rates with all eye candy turned.
