I'd buy the single card and buy a mobo that has enough space to fit a future 7800 in sli(as of mine don't ). Later on, if your games are lagging you can buy another 7800 put them in sli mode, by that time most games(hopefully) will support sli too, BTW this will be everyones last 939 upgrade as there phasing it out for the AM2 mobo

SLI will be slower then one card that's about twice as fast.

The way cards have been improving, it's better both economically and performance wise to get one good card now.

If u'r going to save that 7800GS for ur whole system upgrade (except the vc) then buy it and another at the time w/ ur upgrade...Unless u mean whole system means everything then go for the 6600gts sli. It's obvious that if u do whole system upgrade u would buy vc that's better than those. That's my hamburger for today.
