I was wondering if it would be faster to have 2 8600gt's or 1 8800gt. Thank you.

Probably 1 8800 gt. Were you looking at the 512MB version of the 8800 gt? I also have read that just one card will be more stable and you won't have as many problems as with SLI. You also should consume less power :)


EDIT: grammar

One 8800GT (256mb or 512mb) is better to have than two 8600GTs. The raw shader power and high clock speeds of the 8800GT cannot come close to being touched by even two 8600GTs.
