I remember people saying the same thing back in '98.

I went SLI in the spring of 2008. I'm not an early adopter type, I wait until a technology is fairly mature. That being said, there were still a lot of issues - lack of features (multi-monitor settings), and some compatibility/stability problems. It took about 18 months before the majority of these were ironed out, and by the time I got my second set of cards in Dec 2010 it was pretty much perfect with very early driver/profile releases.

Performance was always pretty good, but there's no doubt in my mind that I went from an average of 60% to about 80% scaling over that time period, and I see as high as 90%+ in optimized titles (which are usually multi-platform/non-port like Skyrim, or PC-intended titles). NVIDIA really got their act together during that time frame for a variety of reasons.

AMD's Eyefinity/Crossfire does have some advantages but Nvidia is smooth for the "average" gamer - which actually I consider myself: these 2 cards were $320 total in Dec 2010 and outpace a stock 670 on most major titles. That's a really stellar value and it's by no means out of reach of many PC gamers price-wise; you can power it with 650W in many cases.
