Yes -- amazingly expensive, amazingly power hungry, and amazingly hot. Probably amazingly noisy, too. The whole double graphics card setup, whether SLI or CrossFireX, is for the hardcore gamers whose primary use is running the most recent games, especially shooters. You mentioned the games you play -- sims and RTS -- so you are not in that category. Another thing that is important to the hardcore gamers is framerate because most of them play online and a higher framerate can lead to a higher frag rate.
