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

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.
