Not entirely correct, since the difference is performance of a 2x16/2x8 SLI-setup is negligible. Just like the difference between AGPx8/AGPx4 and AGPx8/PCI-e.

I say, stick with the card you have, and upgrade when G80 strikes the market.

AMD64 X2 4400+
DFI Lanparty Ultra-D
2GB Kingston Hyper-X (2-3-2-6)
TT Big Typhoon
eVGA 7900GT KO Superclocked (650/1650)
250GB Maxtor DiamondMax SATA2 HDD
Hiper Type-R 580W SLi PSU
19" Sony Trinitron CRT

Says who I ask Oblivion is a great game but the requirements are always overblown I run everything on max and don't have that card.
