I had up untill a few days ago decided a 6800GS would sit in my new rig (AMD 3500+, 1GB Ram, Asus SLI, etc, etc). I wasnt 100% sure, so as I knew my bits would take a few days to arrive I held off, what a fool I am!
I did start thinking maybe I could buold the system down to a price a bit and go with a 6600GT, with a future view to SLI but TBH I'm not overwhelmed with the benchmarks I've seen or the fact its such an old card these days, Any one have any input on 6600GT's?

I know about the whole 12 vs 16 pipes and clock arguments, but I'm looking for opinions from people who have more of an idea than me!?
On a side note, I've seen sites etc that are claiming to have run to 6800's from seperate manufactures in SLI mode with no problems, Nvidia tweaked some drivers that we all need to know about?
Sorry its such a long post and thanks as always.
