    the 320mb of memory might hurt performance at higher res, but at lower res, it would be faster than a single 9800gtx.

    the new 9900GTX is going to use a much more powerful GT200 GPU compared to the dated G92 which is basically no different from the G80 besides the smaller transistors.

    i would wait for that to come out in early July.

    If you are talking about price 9800 GTX is the answer. Theres no point of SLIing 2 8800 GTS.

    There's only one tru definitive answer to this. 2 GTS's if you currently own one and an SLi board.
