What are the main advantages and disadvantages to running two SLI'd or
Crossfired graphics cards in a new system build to just getting a
single card?

E.g.

1)

Asus ATI Radeon HD 5770 CuCore 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express £135.99
Asus ATI Radeon HD 5770 CuCore 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express £135.99
Total Cost £271.98

- Exclusive Voltage Tweak Technology to increase extra performance
- Exclusive 5.8oz Copper Rod (CuCore) Cooler
- Core Clock: 850MHz
- Memory: 1024MB GDDR5
- Memory Clock: 4800MHz (Effective)
- Memory Bandwidth: 76.8GB/s
- Processing Cores: 800
- Bus Type: PCI-Express 2.1
- Display Connectors: 1 x DVI , 1 x D-Sub and 1 x HDMI

2)

Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 5850 Vapor-X 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express £260.99
Total Cost £260.99

- Vapor-X Cooling Assembly

Both total costs are similar, but which one would win it for you?

Would you say it would depend on end use? And would latency be much of
a factor with the two card system? Would it hamper future use of USB3
and/or SATA600? Bottlenecking?
