don't get SLI at all, just get one 7900GT and then upgrade to G80 in the future.

i would go with 7900GT, and not 2x7600gt for three reasons:
1-7900GT is cheaper
2-not all games are optimized for SLi
3- two card needs more power than one card

Can you buy two 7900gt and put them together like the 7600gt?

You can put any two PCI-E videocards together, be it SLI or Crossfire.

SLI being nVidia's tech and Crossfire being ATI's

but i think I can speak on the behalf of most people here at techist.com and the gaming public that we prefer nVidia most of the time, it changes but i think nVidia consistently has the best peformance and value
