Default Sli Help

Ok guys I'm gettin a new rig....... AMD 64 ATHLON 3800+ 939 with a Gigabyte K8N ULTRA SLI READY mobo. im gona get 2 SLI XFX XFX GeForce 6600 GT 128's so in the end i'll end up with a 256 SLI config. Will this SLI configuration beta out a x850xtpe? or a 6800ultra? or would i be better off to go with 1 6800ultra?

but the 2 6600's are cheaper then the 6800 and i think 2 6600's in SLI would beat that card out.....I think.

I was thinking...............after talking to my dad and is it acutally worth getting that with my current system? or should i just get a new videocard? like is a p4 3.2 stll good? AGP is my problem i wish i had pci-e
if i bought lets say a 6800ultra or a x850xtpe would that be dumb to do with a agp system?

Yes it will work with only one card in. if you o/c the 2 6600gt it will be the same as the 6800ultra. i was going to buy the 6800ultra, but i went with 2 6600gt's (only have one at the moment). in the long run it's cheaper to go with the 2 6600gt's.
