WEll... let's put it into context...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814143026
is $195. If you get two... you have a total of $390. This 6800gt here...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814143029
is $359... I think a single 6800gt is cheaper... yeah. And the performance is good, seriously. That 6600gt only have 8 pipelines... I'm sure you could find others with 12, maybe, but the 6800gt has 16, performs better, and is just an all around better card. Stick with one 6800gt.

1 6800gt definetly owns 1 6600gt. But he is not looking to spend the money on a 6800, so for the money a 6600gt is what he should get.

Yeha, but wasn't he wondering on wether to get two 6600gt's or what? I say one 6800gt would pwn two 6600gt's... I've seen benchmarks...

Oh I get it now- yeah 1 6800 owns 2 6600gt's running in SLI. You're right-if he considers getting 2 6600's it would be more powerful and cheaper to get 1 6800gt.
