You can't SLI different cards. The most you could do in that case is SLI the 260's and run the 9800+ as a dedicated PhysX card, which would be almost useless due to the power of the 260's and the general lack of PhysX in games. Google some GTX 260 SLI results, check the test setups and results, and you should get a good idea of the performance to expect with different titles, resolutions, settings, etc.

Also forgot to mention, if you're considering purchasing 260's, make sure to get the Core 216 version (it has 216 shader cores as opposed to 192 of the original launch GTX 260, giving better performance). Also try to pay attention to this if researching performance benchmarks (so...Google GTX 260 Core 216 SLI results or something of that nature).

What you have there is a good ol' folding PC :)

But, like Amtrak said, all you get from those are an SLI pair of 260's with a 9800 PhysX cards, witch is great.... if you only plan on playing Batman AA :)
