6600gt Sli?

I am looking to do a graphics upgrade on my system, I cannot afford to get a high end SLI board and a pair of 7800gtx's, my question is would a pair of ASUS 128mb 6600GT's be substantially faster than my unlocked 6800? obviously I would have more texture memory to play with and a greater memory speed but would this offset the lower memory bandwidth of each card and the less capable gpu? I would be using a middle of the range sli board

A pair of 6600GTs will cost as much as a 6800GT. A 6800GT will run euqally as fast to start off with, plus you can add a second 6800GT in SLI later on.

An unlocked 6800 will run as fast as 2 6600GT's in every game, 2 6600GT's will only run as fast as an unlocked 6800 in some games. 2 6600GT's requires an SLI board, more power, and leaves no room to upgrade. If you're going to upgrade to PCI, just get a 6800GT and have room for later.

X800GTO2 - Mod it to a X850.

Faster and cheaper than a 6800GT.
