nVidia SLI


I'm thinking about building a computer. How does SLI work, and can it be used with PCI cards? Does anyone know of any graphics cards that have dual VGA output and can use SLI, I would prefer that the card be inexpensive.

Is it really that hard to go to www.nvidia.com and click on the button that says "SLI" on it? Is it really?

Here's a link anyway. Next time start with the obvious?
http://www.nvidia.com/page/sli.html

Yah, I'd have to say... Google it.

Oh, and PCI? no no... PCIe only for SLI.

ok, I ooked at nvidia before, and it really didn't tell me anything. So, If if were to build a computer, and were on a limited budget, I should be one dual vga output PCIe graphics card, and then save my money for another one? thanks
