2x 9800gtx+ will outperform the single gtx 260 ssc. two 9800gt would surpass a gtx 260 ssc. unless you want a fast single card setup, go with the dual 9800gtx+ ( i just got one and love it, i upgraded from a 9800gt)

would a 600 psu be good enough to handle 2 9800 gtx+ ssc?

go here and fill in all of your pc specs then click calculate and it will show you how much power you will need

i ran the calculator with my 1st rig specs putting in 2x 9800gtx+ instead of my gtx260 and got 605 watts, but my system is different from yours

ur better off going with the 260 GTX I think, save a little more and get a 2nd one, the extra ram helps alot. Honestly I never believed it till I saw it.

2 9800 GTX+ will outperform 1 260, but the 9800 GTX+ just a 9800 GTX revision with a higher sticker price.

:) 

I personally think the 9800 GTX+ aren't what they are cracked up to be, 1 9800 GTX+ still struggles against the 4850, and the 260 GTX is 30% faster than the 4850, and its a single GPU :) .

Thats what I think. Unless you got one of hell of a deal on them :)
