Default New Graphics Cards

So Debating on what i should get

2 x 8600GT
Newegg.com - XFX PVT84JUDD3 GeForce 8600GT XXX 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card - Retail
or
1 x 8800GT
Newegg.com - XFX PVT88PYDF4 GeForce 8800GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

whats would give me the most for my money also i hear there are the 8900s coming out in december?

Wrong debate. The real debate is do you like to game?

1.8800GTS rev2 (out soon)
2.8800GT (selling like hot cakes)
3.3870XT (ati's lil hot cake)
Bin. 8600GT (definately not a hot cake)

we dont know what the price of the new GTS will be so the best one for your money atm is 8800GT
