You can't SLI a 7600GS & 7600GT.

Only the same models. GT @ GT, GS @ GS, etc

On the 6 and 7 Geforce Series, but in the 8 series you can have a 8800GTX and a 8800GTS in SLI , but it's not yet supported.
But two 7600GS's are equal to a 7900GS/7900GT when overclocked.
Get two 7600GS's instead.
Preferably the XFX 7600GS XXX EXtreme Edition with cores at 500 and mem at 900, both 100mhz oc from factory.

Dude don't be sad , the 7600GT isn't THAT superior.
And when you get the money you can sli the gs's.
With the advantage that they're passively cooled, so no noyse during games....

Yea the 7600 GSs are great cards. Gonna pick one up for a friend because he insisted on buying an OEM machine(HP) *shivers* Buy.com had one for 50.00 AR at one point. I'm not sure if its still there though.
