    The FPS-cap in wow is 64 FPS, so if you have that already you wont have any FPS increase. However, with SLi you might be able to increase the settings on some graphic-snacks.

    Especially since WoW often reports me over the 100 FPS mark (and as high as 130, recently). I believe they may have had a cap back in "vanilla" days, but with the increase in available computing and graphics power, such a thing seems very silly.

    As a non-graphically intensive game, I wouldn't go out of my way to SLI anything unless you already had the cards lying around or just didn't have SLI setup for the app. Even with max settings and shadows WoW hardly taxes modern single cards.

    As for the FPS thing, you don't need anything higher than ~60ish unless there are areas of slowdown. Your eyes won't notice the difference.

    The FPS cap in WoW is 1000FPS it stopped there for me atleast

    If you have vSync enabled it'll cap itself at your monitor's refresh rate.

    WoW does not support SLI, in fact it will run slower if you enable it (used to have 2x8800GTX).
