    I have a coworker trying to sell two 7900GTs for $350. I'm trying to explain to him that there is no way they are worth that much. $350 will buy a 5850 which would smoke that setup without even trying. I'm not sure what two 7800GTXs in SLI can do, but I'm sure a single 8800GT could probably match or beat it.

    Your best bet it to find a GTS250, GTX260, or 4850/5750/5770. This depends on your preferences and budget. I wouldn't bother setting up SLI on the 7800GTX.
  2. ^+1. SLI with older generation cards can be pointless/expensive. Unless you can manage to grab one in working condition off eBay for less than $40, I'd really buy a new graphic card. A pair of GeForce 7800GTXs in SLI would probably perform around the same as an ATi Radeon HD 4650 GDDR3, which costs around $60, and would perform more efficiently.
