The greater your resolution, the more use you are getting out of your 8800's. At low resolutions, they are not being used completely as they are waiting for the CPU to give them data to process; the higher the resolution, the longer the Cpu's are occupied with data processing.
its 1280x1200 ..thats max Resolution on my monitor at 60HZ

With that as your resolution, you are simply wasting money by buying a second card. It simply will not be used fully as it will be held back by your CPU. You're better off saving the money off one card, and using it for a new card in, say, 2 years time.

Nearly a complete waste of money going SLI GTX. Unless you just want benchmark scores...

And even with SLI GTX i think you would need a larger overclock on your CPU to help prevent bottlenecking.

1280x1200 in SLI is basically a waste, you will get 10FPS more at most.

Spend the money on a better monitor, 1280x1200 is kind of low for a single 8800GTS, let alone 2 of them... Get like a 1600x1200 CRT or 1680x1050 LCD. Then when you get more money, get SLI. (I highly recommend a 1680x1050 LCD...)
