Yeah you're better off w/ an 8800 for gaming. If you're using the comp for multimedia and stuff like that, then mid range 8 series are better for that although I still don't recommend it.

I bought the 2 EVGA 8600 GT's because they were only $160 shipped, but when I have a steady income I will definitely upgrade to a 8800 card, hopefully by then they will be cheaper.

Why waste money on a 8600 when you're gonna upgrade to a 8800 when you next can?
You're buying a whole new pc, 2x8600's would be good for multimedia, if that's what you're doing, but a single 8800 is better for gaming, and we all know sli's a basic waste of time unless you have all the money good grows, and want 2 of the best card out for that slight edge.
Get a 8800gts
