Default 2 New GTX470's or 1 GTX470 and a new Processor?

Here's what I got: Asus PND32SLI deluxe, E8400 Core 2 Duo, 4 gigs Corsair Ram, Corsair 750w PSU, 2 8800GT's in SLI, all in an Antec P160 case along with a DVD burner and two SATA2 HD's.

Now, a GTX470 is about the same price as a new Q9650 processor. Do I go with one new GTX470 and upgrade my processor, then get the other GTX470 in 3-4 months, or do I get both cards now and wait another year or two to do a full MB/processor upgrade to LGA1366??? If I go with the two new cards, is my processor gonna bottleneck me significantly??? Harumph!!! I think my PSU will be ok, I only have a DVD drive and two SATA HD's in my Antec P160 case.

Any help here guys?
