Well atm I have the crappiest speakers you could imagine lol, but what i didn't list was the speakers I am buying for the new system, nothing great just a logitech 5.1 system, should do me well enough for gaming. But i just phoned a buddy back home who is a certified tech and he said to not bother with a soundcard atm, the board has a 8 channel on board which he says will do me just ine for gaming.He also said that if not overclocking I may as well just go with samsung or kingston value ram and save a feew bucks their as well.
Jack ya i thought that a pair of 6600 gts was equal to a single 6800 gt, but uptil now all the 6600gt revies i had read were just comparing a single 6600gt vs a pair in SLI. I ran across this reviwe which benchmarks the 6600 gt, the 6800, and the 6800 gt. Singley and in SLI mode .
As you can see according to the benchmarks from this review at least, in all the game tested it basically went 2 6600gt's equals 1 6800 and 2 6800's equal 1 6800 gt ( more or less give or take a few frames either way depending on game and resolution ) This review is what made me start to entirely rethink my whole approach to the SLI. I'm going to try andf find more reviews like this one where they compare the 3 singley and in SLI and see if I can confirm this.
