    Wikipedia knows all

    Try and get ur teeth into that one, oh and pics:

    SLI Motherboard with 2 SLI graphics cards:
    Just noticed that bridge at the top, i think it must bypass the output pins of one card and put the current through the second. Rough guess anyway

    What a bummer, you pay twice the price and get worse performance (sometimes)

    That would only be if you get two low end cards say like 7600GTs or something like that.

    Oh forgot to say this earlier Blebbz, that bridge basically links the two cards into SLI, without that bridge they would act as two separate cards. You can't run SLI without the bridge (SLI motherboards come with one, sometimes two).

    EDIT: Woohoo 900 posts lol

    Yeah probably, to me it just looks like that out of the four 7950GX2's they are joined in pairs. So basically 2 SLI systems in 1 comp lol.
