    Hmmm... Considering the rather poor scaling of typical SLI (two cards, twice the cost, twice the power consumption, maybe a 5-25% performance increase, depending)... I wonder what you get with four cards, and four times the cost, and four times the power consumption?

    I'm guessing an additional 2-10%...

    But boy does it sell video cards, eh?

    That looks cool, but just imagine the price! 900 watt power supply, 200 bucks, video cards 1000-2000 bucks.

    But...

    Heating Bill -$200
    Saving on winter clothes -$300 (You won't be going out anywhere)
    Saving on nights out -$500 (see above)
    Pure gaming joy, bragging rights, and not being able to hear your missus over the whine of all those fans?...

    ...Priceless!

    It might be worth it, if only so you could sell it on eBay 5 years later. Look at the Voodoo5 6000. 3dfx only made like 50 of those quad-GPU monstrosities. They sell on eBay for a small fortune, IIRC.
    Give what you cannot keep to gain what you cannot lose.

    I would want it too run my eight monitors in non SLI mode but with video acceleration across them all.

    Or at least 4 monitors with SLi. I would put 4 of the $350 512mb 6800GT's in it and have a hay day with my 3D modeling.
