SLI 8800GTS 512 or get a GTX 260

Just wondering if buying another 8800GTS 512 to SLI my current graphic card or would it be better for me just to upgrade to a GTX 260? It's for a new build but budget constraint it's gonna limit my GPU option for a while. Or should I wait it out for newer cards to come out?

New build should be:

i7 920
Asus P6T Deluxe V2
Cosair Dominator 6gb

  1. If you already have an 8800GTS, then get another one. Two in SLi is equal to or better than a GTX285

    and GTX285 > GTX280 >/~ GTX275 > GTX260

    If you don't have a card, then get the GTX260.

    That'll hold you till next year when Nvidia's GT300 comes out

    2 8800 GTS 512mbs, especially overclocked, will dominate a GTX 260, a GTX 275, and come somewhere near a GTX 285.
  3. Definetly find another 8800GTS.
  4. Get a cheap 8800gts if you can or just wait till new dx11 cards come out.
  5. Ya, from the looks of it I'm gonna go buy a 8800GTS 512MB and SLI it with my current card to hold me over till next year. Thanks for the advices.~
