My System Specs

Default

you are interested about the value or the horsepower? single powerful card works on any mobo while SLI requires dedicated , multiple pci e x 16 slots and possible hacks (crossfire mobo with nvidia cards for example). if mobo is not ready for sli you will need to get the single powerful card, if sli is possible then you can get some lower cards and put them in parallel : dual/tri or even quad SLI (2 x 9800gx2 comes to mind). Obviously, the PSU needs to be a capable one if you are thinking SLI, so there are trade offs on each side.
