Would two 9600gt's be able to compete with a 9800? Do you think they would be able to play crysis maxed out @ 1280*1024?

I assume you're talking about the 9800GTX correct? If that's the case, I don't think two 9600gt's would be able to compete with one 9800GTX.

Here's a review with the 9800GTX compared with other mid-high end cards here. They test it on Crysis at the resolution you have specified (as well as others) and it did fairly well with most of the setting maxed out, as long as you have anti-aliasing turned off.

Don't SLI two 9600GT, just get a single card setup. One 9600GT would be fine (assuming you don't want all the eye candy), if you wanted a little more power, then spend some additional money on the 8800GT, 8800GTS 512mb or 9800GTX. In all honesty, I think a single 9600GT would satisfy you're needs.
Remember, you need a SLI compatible motherboard if you wish to attempt SLI.
Lastly, what kind of PSU do you have?

I wouldn't SLI anything on the PSU regardless of the load. That aside, at such a low resolution you're much better off getting a single high end card.
