Good cards for SLI?

At the time I built my computer, SLI didn't support more then one screen and would require you change setting to play games. SLI has since supported multiple displays in SLI mode. I'm currently using my video card for two screens and a USB adapter for my 3rd display. I'm considering replacing my single nvidia 9800 GTX+ with two cards in SLI so I can better support the third screen. Any recommendations? I would like to stay cheap, but if I'm upgrading GPUs, I might as well get more power out of it.

There are some awesome cards on the cheap. I think I saw an ATI 6850 for $179? or near to that. On Newegg though. And yeah, I know you said SLI but Xfire works too!

I'm looking for two crads, not one. (~400 is expensive).
Also, my MoBo support SLI, not Xfire.

460's would be a good choice. They compare to a 580 when in SLI. Plus you can pick them up for around $100 each which makes it a great bang for the buck.

Nice! I'm actually going to end up waiting a bit until I settle into my new place and make enough money to upgrade my screens and video cards.
