2 7600's in sli. the currently the only cards out on the market where a single card can out-perform a SLI or Cross-fire set-up is the 8800's.

The 7950GT beats the stuffing out of 2 7600GTs in SLI.

Um, it's kind of pointless to spend that much money on a graphics card now, IMO just save up a bit more for a 8800 GTS.
But anyway, yes, the 7950 GT by FAR!

If that's your setup, there's no point in buying a new graphics card, your CPU and RAM are gonna bottleneck the thing to the point where the graphics card won't even change performance that much.

SLI also depends on the game, some games don't run any different, if not worse when using SLI

I'd buy the one 7600gt, which you can get for around 120 shipped. Don't get SLI and don't get the 7950, both are two expensive right now, unless you don't plan on upgrading to 8 series cards in the near future. Thats my opinion.
