The main reason that i hear people put their pc's in sli is if they have large screens. I have a 17" Princeton... don’t laugh but i was wondering the other benefits of having SLI. I know the frame rates will go up but is it really needed?

For a 17" it's not worthy...you won't feel much of an improvement in gaming.

Unless you have alrdy gotten 1 8800GTS i would suggest getting 1 8800GTX instead of SLI 8800GTS

on a 17", there wont be much difference. Minimum for SLI is 24" with a minimum res of 1620x1024, but this would be lagged with any SLI of 8800 cards.

Instead of going SLI, use that money for a better screen, then think about SLI ;)

Def go with a better screen at least a 22" for your setup. We have similar systems, how are your temps on your 6000+ my idle on both cores average 42c load 52 c. what cooler are you using. This is a screen size to think about below and compare it to yours...
