Would there be much of an improvement in moving to two 9800GTX+ over the 8800GT's? I can get two of the GTX+ for $309 from the egg now and I'm expecting this to drop again when they are rebranded GT250.

I would suggest getting a GTX260 Core 216 55nm, since performance wise it runs about the same as a vanilla GTX280 and costs significantly less. I have also seen a GTX280 for pretty cheap... under 300.
