yes it is required in SLI also. a V2 cannot produe its own 2D graphics, it focuses on 3D. I have a question of my own: in SLI, do you use two of the monitor port link cables (linking the two V2s together)?

SLI configuration requires one internal cable between two Voodoo2 (step 1) and one external cable between one Voodoo2 and primary card (step 2). In fact, output device is attached to nearer Voodoo2 and signal from primary card goes to this Voodoo2 and then to monitor.
