Default GTS G92 512 vs 2nd GTS G80 320

Okay, I have one 8800GTS 320MB and I want to upgrade my graphics power (sub $200 net)

I can buy a second 320 GTS for $100 on Newegg.
Newegg.com - Open Box: MSI NX8800GTS 320M OC GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB 320-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card

or...

I can buy this G92 GTS for $155 after MIRB and sell my current card on ebay.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127325

What's better? SLI'd 320s or a single G92?

I am also running a 550W SLI psu and 2.6GHz C2D so SLI'd newer cards would be pushing that. Any advice?

I am beginning to eye the 4870

I haven't upgraded since 3/07, so when I head back up to college in august I may check my finances and buy one.

Even a 4850 would be awesome however if you can sell the 8800GTS 320 for 100 bucks and get another 200 for the 4870 it's powerful...

How much do you think I could get at college for my "guts"? (easier to sell than a whole crappy PC but more value than piece by piece)

Below are my parts and retail 3/07 prices:

GPU - $305 - EVGA 8800GTS SC 320MB
CPU - $183 - Intel E6300 Core 2 Duo
MOBO - $115 - MSI P6N SLI-FI 650i 775
RAM - $150 - 2x Patriot DDR2 800 1GB
HSF - $35 - Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro 92mm

$300-$350 sound reasonable now?

Then I could buy this stuff:

$54.99 === COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 (Mine is total crap)
$194.99 === SAPPHIRE 100242L Radeon HD 4850 512MB
$39.99 === WINTEC AMPX 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800 Dual Channel Kit
$89.99 === GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX
$129.99 === Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 Wolfdale 2.53GHz LGA 775 65W

$545.31 shipped.

Or should I try to sell just the card and the chip? 0_o
