What is the resolution of this 23"?

2 x 8800GTs or GTSs and probably 2 x 9600GTs, will outperform a single GTX. With the 2 x 9600GTs, being the cheapest option.

it is not a matter of out preforming, it is a matter of being with in performance range.. if one card can handle it go with one... in your case one gtx will be fine

edit i forgot about 2 9600's that is a good idea... however you can save a lil money by going with one card and non sli mobo

true, but they are less in demand because everybody we tell knows that now, so hardly any people buy them off Newegg, so sometimes it goes to $40 W/O MIR, sometimes its like $70 with one, its just fluctuates a lot...
