Just allows higher/better visual settings and in some case if needed for added FPS. I used SLI in most of my gaming systems in the last 2 years, but right now I use just one 8800GTX. Its faster then my older 7900GTX SLI setup. Where the diff is when you are using a very high rez monitor (2560x1600) like the Dell/Apple/HP 30" LCD's, SLI still has an advantage over a single card in that setup. Usually in most games you are going to be able to set all the eye candy on and still have a playable frame rate over a single card running at the same rez. Or it will allow you to crank the rez to the max and still have good frame rates for games. Also it depends if the game is actually support in SLI by Nvidia, not all are.
EDIT: Oblivion looks great set to max using SLI (depending on type of cards).
