Others would know better than me but since you have a 8800GT I'd sit tight for a bit. The newer "killer" cards seem to just be hyped up recycled current technology so not a great leap forward, not enough to justify the cost anyway. nVidia's 9xxx cards are on the horizon and ATI is looking like they're getting back in the saddle and ready to compete again so there might be some good competition before long. Besides I think it's been shown many times that multiple graphics cards don't scale well. Yeah it's faster but again at what cost and for what gain?

Just my 2 cents.
