    mining with cpu and gpu is just no longer possible and probably never will be again, you need huge mining rigs before you can even start to earn the money back you spent on electricity and equipment.

    SLI mining won't be possible. You can use them separate though. Never the less even tho they are darn expensive they have almost the same performance as a 1080Ti. Which means at the current date you could earn up to $8 a day mining zCash with both cards ( this is without electricity costs ).

    I think you're better off selling them if not needed in the future.

    You can use both for mining concurrently. You should expect 1080 TI like performance. They would do very good mining Z-Cash or ETH.

    I was thinking of selling them, they are just gathering dust.

    Did you try the profitability calculator here: http://whattomine.com/

    You can enter your hashrate (in your case, pick 2 x 1080 TI, since those are comparable with the cards you have), and electricity cost and it will show you the forecasted costs and profit for each coin.

    You can run pretty much on the normal net. I was able to run 12 X 1070's without any special electricity setup.

    You don't need any special electricity setup for 2 cards.

    I've mined with 50 cards, drawing over 7500W on a regular home electricity setup.

    Just need to understand one formula:
    Power (Watt) = Current (Amp) x Voltage (Volt)

    So if you have 15 amp circuit and 120 V, you could draw up to 1800 Watt from that circuit, before tripping the breaker. Of course, to be on the safe side everyone recommends to not exceed 80% of rated power, so 1440 Watt would be the maximum recommended power draw on a 15-amp 120-Volt circuit.

    I think that right now the video cards are oversaturated by the mining is difficult to get a good video card at a good price

    The gpu's are starting to appear at higher than normal prices in the stores now, but seems like people are more cautious to buy them, as you have said difficulty has increased a lot, while coin prices have been down.
