You mean the cards are SLI or the motherboard SLI or both?
OK so the drivers are what is going to make this possible, now

Your cards are 260. Think about this. They are gonna render 2 5760x1080 screens at once. That's a load. It may run, but I doubt it will run well. Now if you had a couple 285's that would be more plausible.

Personally if you can afford 285's, and can wait, I'd go and get a GF100 card, might as well get the latest and greatest. well that's until we see some pricing.
