There isn't and, though it is probably of benefit to FS, the 8800 series' processor is designed with SLI in mind.
SLI has intoduced another irritant; a popup message. Whenever my FS machine boots up I'm warned that sicne I only have one graphics card SLI has been disabled. My mobo only has one PCI-Express x 16 slot, so it should know I can't run SLI. So, what sends me the message?

In FSX with 3 IRIS F-14 Tomcats on screen FPS was 18 with the 6600GT, with the 8800GTX it was 45 with 6 tomcats on screen. BUT you need AT LEAST 600 Watts coming out of your PSU, 2 free IDE sockets and plenty of cooling power. But boy is it a beast ;) oh and 1gb of ram too, it uses it as swap storage or summat!
