SLI 6600GT. Both will run faster than the 6800GS

for sure do that. The only worthwhile complete graphics card upgrade would be to a 7800GT, a 6800GS will not beat SLI'd 6600GTs

SLI'ing two 6600 GT's is stupid. You waste money on two cards that barely compete with the 6800 Ultra, even when together. SLI'ing two 6800 GS's is a little more sensible, but two 6600 GT's? Waste of money.

i wouldnt of thought it was a waste of money, if havin 2 6600 GT's is better (like ppl have said) then i would go with SLI'ing 2 6600GT's
