If you had the chance to get an 8800GT for almost half price( 265$-44%=149$ to pay) would u get over a 9600GT? or is the 9600GT future proof? Which is the better overclocker? Any advice on an after market coolers for the 2?(almost same hole design)

No doubt the 8800GT is the better of the two.

I would double check that price though, $150 is around the current fair market price for an 8800GT.

As for aftermarket coolers, there are 4 that come to mind

Thermaltake Duorb

Thermalright HR-03GT

Zalman VF-900 (and VF1000)

Arctic Cooling Accelero S1

All do quite well. Personally I recommend the Duorb or the HR-03GT from personal experience they have performed very well, however I have not used either Zalman, or the Accelero, so I cannot comment on them, but maybe some one else can.

I would get neither because for that same $300 that you would pay for two 8800GT's you can just get a Radeon 4870 which is faster then both.

The Accelero S1 is very cheap but performs really well for the price. My room temp is maybe 80F and my 8800GT is currently idling at 48C so it isn't that bad at all. Running F@H brings the card up to 53C which still isn't bad at all. Would recommend this if you don't have much money to spend on those expensive ones.

Ah, you want to know about SLI now?

I would recommend a single 4850 then, or a 4870 if you have $300 burning a hole through your pocket.

QFT. The HD4870 would be the better choice and potentially more future-ready (with DirectX 10.1 and GDDR5). Although the HD4850 is amazing for its price.

In all cases? One 4870 is faster than 2x 8800GTs in SLI?

Its pretty close.
HD4870>GTX260
and a GTX260 is on par with 8800GT SLI (with the 8800GTs coming out on top).
Also the HD4870 is a single-card solution, allowing a second card to be added in the future, however you can't add another 8800GT. Of course the OP would need a CF board rather than SLI (which he doesn't have).
