Default Ati or Dual Nvidia's?

What would be the better Gpu, a single TI RADEON X800 XT Platinum Edition 256MB DDR3 or dual Nvidia Geforce 6800's 256 MB?

Ummm, dual nVidia cards... Hands down, nothing can touch 2 nVidia 6600GTs, nonetheless 2 6800's. If you have the money, do dual, I love the SLi setup!

LMAO!!! WTF.... Two nVidia 6600GTs in SLi beat one x850XT in 3DMark03 benches... You may like ATi, but one x800 can't stand up, and it could be a while for ATi to make "SLi"... I like both companies, but nVidia is doing better right now. I own both BTW...

How much is x800 Pro, caus I did dual 6600GTs in SLi for less then 400$, actually $392 to be exact.. I think x800Pro is more.

x800 is about 400 or 450, so i guess dual 6600's would be best, But for price i wouldnt get dual 6800,gt,ultra,or reg

Well, nVidia 6900 series is going to pwn all, and right now a single 3D1 card from Gigabyte pwns all cards on the market, including Quadros.... It is based on 6600GT cores, two on one board. Sweet card, you must admit.

Check out my review on it:
