Why go for two of anything! Go with the 6800

I would get the 6800 Ultra. Interesting looking at the specs. I would assume that you have a motherboard that supports SLI.

i'd go for the 6800 then if you do have a mobo that supports sli then get another 6800 later when it goes down in price... but thats just me

Lol why in the world would you need 2 6800 lol. Thats a waste of money. One 6800 Ultra would be great.

I think codeine has it right;
buy 1 6800 now (a GT) then if you have the money later (when it's gone down in price) buy another and use it in SLI

note: SLI requires 2 of the same card

I would also get a 6800 (GT) because the advantages of SLI are not widespread.

there are big advantages to SLI, but 1 6800 GT gives about the same performance as 2 6600 GT's, except it's one card
ant it also gives you the option to upgrade to another 6800 GT later on, so you can run them in SLI.
