With these new cards coming out, should we expect to see a price drop in the 9600 GT? Im going to be building a computer in about 3 weeks or so.

I think the reason Intel aren't giving SLI capabilities to Nvidia, is because Nvidia haven't opened their specs to it or given a license for it (basically, not necessarily because Intel doesn't want to, but because Nvidia haven't let them)
ATI licensed Intel to add crossfire support, I think before AMD acquired them.

So if I get like an 8800GT superclocked and it is deactivated I can get a differnt 8800GT and SLI it?

You misread that, because I said you can put two different clocked cards together and it scales to the lower clocked card...

No... thats still for the end of this month to early July

You CANNOT get a gtx 260 or GTX 280 for sub-$300, I don't think that even Radeon Card's will be $300 range, just get the GTS g92

NOT RECOMMENDED. By experience.

You are way better off just buying the exact same card if you plan to SLI. You can avoid many problems this way.
