Default Should I go SLI?

I came across a used GTX 260 For $90 on RFD and was wondering if it would be worth it to grab it and SLI with it you guys? I barely game as it is, but when I do I like to be at the best settings possible. The max resolution I play on as well is quite low 1024x768 is as big as I get before everything gets to small for me to see, so yea would this be a nice little upgrade or is $90 for a gtx 260 a rip off? It is Evga as well I know that might change some peoples minds on the price/grade/quality of the card. So yea what to do?

Good price for the card but at 1024x768 SLI is beyond overkill and your single GPU will be fine.

no you shouldn't you won't see any diff at that res at all it's total overkill. but if you want a decent card 90 is pretty good deal for a 260
