Two way, Three way SLI? Need help!

So i've been learning TONS about motherboards and gpus and cpus and the list goes on. But i've been stuck on a couple things now. Im just REALLY curious how SLI connection works if you have multiple GPUs in your build. So lets say we have 2x Gtx Titans (because we're really rich here xD) and we have a 2x SLI between the two of them, oh and we have a dual monitor setup, how would that work? Like I know the SLI connection lets them work together but does that mean if I have one monitor I can just connect my monitor to one of the GPUs and I get the performance of two? Any help would be appreciated!

    You can select in the nVidia control panel which monitor used which connection. For instance you can have two monitors coming out of the two DVIs on one card or split between the two cards. It really makes no difference.

    Also you can have one monitor and it will still use both cards as the two cards render alternate frames. So card one renders frame 1 3 5 7 9 and card two renders 2 4 6 8 10 and so on. Does that make sense?
