I'm thinking of picking up a new video card (or two) and was wondering what your opinions were regarding the best fit for my current system:
Q6600 processor 4gb ram HT omega sound card MSI P7N SLI Platinum LGA 775 nforce 750i motherboard currently - 2x evga geforce 8800gts (320mb) - just not cutting it PC power and cooling - 510Watt (600+ watts peak) sli ready
I have been looking at a 260+ or radeon 4870 1gb, I have no problem with dual gpu set ups also. Any help is much appreciated.

Is your Quad running at stock speed? If so, you should really try overclocking it 3.0ghz first. At 2.4ghz, and running SLI already with a couple of 8800GTS's, your bottleneck is the processor. The GPU's are dated, but I think unless you crank that quad up a little, you are still going to be disappointed with a new video card.
you already have pretty goo GPU settup. 2X 8800gts can let your run ANY game ATM. you have a 750i, so just take a 260 or 280 (or new 270 that is comming soon) and another one latter when price goes down . and YEAH jit is right, an OC would help ALOT
