uh the 7900 will be around 600 dollars... when it comes out u could either get the 6800gs which is 150 or when the 7900 comes out the 7800gt will go down to 200 i suppose

Sell your 6600GT for like 100 dollars, and then buy a 7800GT or if you can get some more money the X1900XT

400 dollars for SLI = no
SLI = no anyways
7900 = 500-600 dollars
X1900XT > 7800GTX 256MB > 7800GT
