Default Buying new parts, need a little help

Since its Christmas time, I'm treating myself too new parts

I need a little help, and only have $350 to spare. I'm going for a SLI setup to play UT3, and the new NFS. Keep in mind I don't indent on buying Crysis.

Now I can get away with 2 XFS 8500GTs, 1 Asus SLI mobo, and 1 C2Dfor $345.

But I can get 2 EVGA 8600 GTs (and products above) for $385.

Should I wait a little for that extra $40 or is the 8500s going to be good for those two games?

BTW if you guys have better/cheaper parts please post
