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?

I thought there was no SLI support in FSX?

Hello Gerry,

Haven't got one myself (yet ;) ) but I installed one on monday, a
8800GTX no less (under 400 pounds from dabs)

All I will say is that Its STUNNING, I've been looking at comparison
charts, the 6600GT gives 92 million vertices's a second, the the
8800GTX gives 3.6BILLION.
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!
