Speaking of bioinformatics research, visualization, and computer hardware: what is the current state of the art in "affordable GPUs" (under $600 per unit or $1200 for a pair)?

Wikipedia has a few positive things to say about SLI (Scalable Link Interface), but for the most part, they revolve around discussion. On the other hand, this benchmark by Tom's Hardware doesn't seem to show enough of a consistent performance gain to justify using dual-SLI. Sometimes it actually does worsem presumably because of the overhead lack of dual-SLI optimization.
