2 9800GTX's are way faster than the GTX260.
Those 9800GTX's will even beat a GTX280

Not really....

The 9800GTXs will perform near equal to the GTX260 in most applications, depending on what games you play, but SLi still suffers from stuttering and scaling is not consistent in every game. In most cases, the GTX260 will beat the 9800GTX in SLi (though by a really small margin)

**plus~ think of the power two 9800GTXs will draw...4 pci-e plugs vs 2...
