Ok, also do you know when or if their will be a big price drop in the 8800gts?

There probably will not be a big price drop of the 8800GTS....there is no competition really from ATI since the HD2900XT is too much and Nvidia won't be releasing the 9 series for months.

True, two 8800GTS 320 isn't worth it, I've heard it's even worst in some games compare to a single GTX.

That Seasonic will probably run two 8800GTS 320 IMO, given that you don't have a lot of other hungry devices in your system. And overclocking with those two would be pushing it.

SLi would run because in SLI the power requirement isn't doubled from a single but rather proportionate to how much extra performance is gained usually... however yes a single 8800GTS is what you want
