    Does ray-traced 3D rendering work with dual GPUs?


      Hello everyone. I'm planning on ditching my Macbook and building a custom PC for my graphics work. I've had the itch and the know-how to do it for a while, and my Mac is getting pretty old.


      Anyway, I know that I need an NVIDIA GPU that's Adobe certified to work with the ray-traced 3D renderer. Specifically, I have the NVIDIA Quadro 4000 in mind. The motherboard I like happens to have two PCIeX16 slots, so I was wondering if installing two of these cards and running them in SLI would improve rendering performance, or if it would cause some kind of a problem? Since the ray-traced 3D renderer is so picky, I thought I would ask before I spent the money.


      I'm not really a gamer, so After Effects is pretty much the most graphics-intensive thing I do, but I'm also hoping that Premiere and Photoshop will be able to take advantage of my setup.


      Thanks in advance for any help!
