    Guess the answer depends on how much money you want to spend. The 7800gt is a good card for the price. Going up to the gtx is a fairly pricey leap.

    Crude but Effective ... it is a way of life.

    Two 6800GS's kick some serious ass and outdo a single 7800GTX by alot. Pirce is comparible to a 7800GTX, but the performance boost makes up for it. I never regretted selling my 7800GTX to get these 6800GS cards.

    If you can afford it fo 2x 7800GT's preferably from eVGA(best warranty and stock OCs), but the 6800GS is deffinatly the best bang for buck in the midrange area, and pair two of them together and you have a 7800GTX killer. Mind you 2x7800GT beat 7800GTX 512(Ultra) in most cases.

    What games are you going to use the CPU with? Check some benchmarks/reviews of SLI setups, the games you play might be faster on a single, higher end card. I have not gone SLI yet due to some shader rendering problems they still seem to have.
