well, 9600 GT really isn't that good.
8800 GTX is actually more powerful, and 8600 GT isn't too far behind 8800 GTX either.
So I'd say 2x 8600GT quite a bit faster than one 9600GT.

If you're thinking about upgrading, you should wait for 9800 GT.

Hey guys. 1 9600GT is as fast as two 8600GT's SLIed at middle resolutions (1024x768-1280x1024) and a better overall solution for gaming. The 8600GT however isn't even remotely close to one 8800GTX. In fact the 8800GTX would be about 4X as fast as one 8600GTS. An overclocked 9600GT as fairly close to a mildly clocked 8800GT 512MB at lower resolutions, with the 8800GT being about 3X 1/2 times as fast as one 8600GT (roughly). So actually your best bet would be an OC'ed 8800GT now, or a 9600GT on sale now somewhere for around $150.00 shipped.

THis MSI would be a great card and over 3 times as fast as one 8600GT.
