    You wont double up on the mem, afraid it doesnt work that way. If you run in SLI mode, you have 2 cards working together with 640 each, if you run in non sli mode you get 2 cards working separately with 640 each. :)

    SLI mode you mean? If you go through Nvidia control panel, its in there. But you wont get a doubled memory whichever way you go, it will still only be 640. :)
