For the price and hassle you would go through for a relic like that , you could get a modern gpu with 3x the horsepower and 10x less heat produced and power required. Not to mention with a power hungry gpu like that your more than likely going to need a new power supply still.

Yes, I would purchase a new mid range card. Less heat and less power draw + better performance. I don't think it would be worth your time upgrading to SLI for the 8800 GTX.
You would also have to find a card similar to yours for SLI. It's recommended not to mix and match vendors with the older generation cards. (You can with the newer, but I would still use 2 identical cards).
