I presume two(or even one) would have better performance than a PCI FX 5200 - simply because the PCI bus speed is much slower therefore the graphic capability cannot be half as 'fast'

On the really fast expensive video cards, if you run SLI you can get maybe UP TO 15-20% better performance (versus a single card of the same exact type) at MOST on Certain games not all games because all games are coded differently and on different game engines.
I would say that two 7100GS's would give you MAYBE UP TO 5% better performance on games versus one 7100GS, and that is not a noticable difference at all.. Your eye wont really be able to tell the difference in my opinion because those cards are slow.
Im just trying to get the point across. I try to tell people that SLI doesnt mean you can Double your performance as that is total BULL.. (Not talking about you) just telling you about personal up close experiences with people.
