Default 7600 gt vs 6600 gt sli

I currently have a 6600 gt and am debating between buying another 6600gt to run in sli or possibly buying a 7600 gt. Any suggestions?

shows a baseline od the cards... I honestly think you'd be better off getting a single 7600GT and saving your money... it's a much better card. Even with SLI on the others

A single 7600GT can beat two 6600GTs in SLI. Just get a 7600GT.

I'm wondering if it's worth the extra money, plus, I'm thinking I want an hdmi output on my card. Here's how I see it. I can my 6600 gt on ebay for net $40 to $65. I can by the 7600 gt for about $150 for a net costs of $100. Or, I can buy a 6600 gt on ebay for a costs of roughly $50. So do you guys think it's worth the extra $50 for the 7600 gt vs 6600gt sli? Especially if the next gen of cards will probably have hdmi output (not to mention the 7600 gt only has 1 dvi output so I can't hook up my tv to the pc.

Sell your 6600GT, because it's not worth SLIing the 6600GTs, when a single 7600GT beats them both.
