I am sure this has been asked about 1000 times, but looking at getting a new M17x (or possibly upgrading the older one) and looking at either 2GB Nvidia 680M or dual 680Ms in SLI formation. Is there really an advantage to SLI? I've had the Radeon Crossfire setup in my current rig and it's caused no end of driver updating issues. Suggestions?

I don't think that new models have dual GPU support so if you want to go with sli then you would have to upgrade your current one.

At this point in time, I do not think that it is worth getting SLI. Though I think it is good to have, so that in future all you have to do is buy one more of the latest card, and SLI it with your older one. That will be the cheapest upgrade.

SLI is game depended and real world benefits are small. I would spend the money on a better screen, SSD, CPU, and Ram, etc.
