My current system setup has an MSI GTS250 512 running to a 22"ACER monitor and I am getting ready to set up to go wireless to a 2nd monitor. Given that there will likely be some speed issues with this setup I am wondering if it would be worthwhile to by a second GTS250 512 for $69 at Newegg and go SLI?
I don't have a lot of money to spend so having sufficient resources for a minimal cost would be advantageous.

I forgot OCZ GAMEXTREME 700 PSU
I don't know or see how SLi would help if you're going wireless to another monitor but for a sheer gaming performance increase if you don't care for DX11, it's 70 bucks spent that will keep you going for a while I reckon.
The wife wants to watch TV and DVD's in the kitchen and the wireless to an existing monitor I have laying around while still running the ACER at the same time I figured I'd need some extra video processing power.
Sli will not be used if you are just watching telly.
A single GTS 250 can easily handle two monitors on it's own. The only advantage you will gain from SLI is in gaming.
Well, I guess that answers that. The wife should be pleased. I was trying to justify a 2nd GPU.
Just out of curiosity...does my GAMEXTREME 700 PSU have enough balls to power 2 GTS 250's?
