What is SLI & do I need it if I don't Play games?

SLI stands for scalable link interface and is used with nvidia graphic cards. Basically it allows you to link up 2 graphics cards together to give you more graphics power in your machine. If you're not a gamer then you wont need it. ATI implementation of this is called crossfire by the way.

I dont think anyone "needs" it.As already said,your graphics will run faster with two cards.
If you are looking at uprading or building a new system,then its worth considering an sli/crossfire motherboard as it will give you more scope for future upgrades.You may end up playing games or using programs that could do with a graphics boost.
