alright so i have a XFX Geforce 8600 gt ultimate overclock, its core clock is 680MHz. I want to know if it would be better to go buy another XFX Geforce 8600 gt ultimate overclock and go SLI or would it be better to go buy a better card like a 8800 gt or 8800 gts when i play crysis with no antialising on and everything set to medium i have between 20-30 FPS whats going to be better New Graphics card or SLI

But isn't a 9600gt a mid range card?

based on my 8800gt sli system, sli still has some stabillity issues whether thier driver or hardware i dont really care. point being your likely to have less trouble with a better single card and if your planing to upgraded that card i would be jumping to a 9800gtx for crysis

The FAQ is your friend :)  :

Should i get 2 midrange cards instead of one high-end card ?
No, again i will answer this with example. 2 8600GT or single 8800gts ? this is one of the most common questions in forums. single 8800GTS (320 or 640) will beat 2 8600GT in games , because a single 8800GTS has more stream processors , more memory clock , more bandwidth. so again 1 single high-end card will beat 2 midrange cards.

agreed, 8800GTS 512. Then if that dont float your boat, then you could SLI that one.
