not likely. From what I know the 8600GT isnt even much better than 1 7600GT.
If you can save for a while more and grab an 8800GT it would be the best move you ever made. its double the 8600GT's price though. Still an amazing card for 250$

an 8600gts is about the same range as a 7900 gt... and if i remember right 2 7600gt's = about 1 7900gt... so.. go figure?

the 8600gts performs with a 7900gs/gt.. and a 7600gt in SLi is also on par with a 7900gs/gt depending on the case... so its up to u at that point...
