Default Gfx Card Question

Currently i am running a 7600gt, looking to upgrade to an 8800gts in the future. I am able to purchase two 6600gt's for 60 dollars total. Will running two 6600's in sli outperform the 7600gt or should i just wait till i can buy the 8800?

help for be greatly appreciated.

I'd just wait.


My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.

Wait. Buying 2 6600GTs would be a waste of money.
