Default Video Card upgrade

Hi everyone,

I have been debating for a couple months now on what to do with my rig. I currently have a GeForce 8800 gts 512mb card and was wondering if i should get another of the same and SLi them or go for a newer card on the market. I would be looking to spend no more then $250(canadian). My comp specs are nVidia nForce 780i mobo, 4gb 4-4-4-12 ram, intel q6600 2.4.ghz, a XFX 8800 GTS, and a 750W Corsar PSU, run on windows 7 ultiamte. I run 2 monitors, one Samsung T240HD and a Viewsonic 22'' Widescreen both at max resolution (might be getting another T240HD if the price is right). Any thoughts would be of great help. Thanks for viewing!

Hmm newer GPU eh. The newer card I was looking at was the XFX GeForce GTX 260. Any thoughts on that card?

XFX GeForce GTX 260 was really a good video card. It has high in performance when it comes to graphical display and I enjoy having this kind of hardware.
