7800 gt hands down.7800 gt is leagues ahead in power and value.

The 6800XT is a very poor performing graphics card, that is why it is so cheap. The 6800GT is way ahead of the 6800XT in performance, so a 7800GT would be even better. Get the 7800GT, SLi is a bit overrated imo, unless you have lots of money to throw around.

i would go as far as to say a 6800 gt is better than 2x6800 xt since 6800 xt is comparable to a 6600 gt.and due to the fundemental flaw in sli you dont get twice the performance .more like 1.5 give or take .2 depending on the application.
the reason many go with sli is it seems 1337.and the only time some1 should go with sli is when building a very high end system ie 2 x 7800 gts.
