Default 6600gt or 6800gs

I'm looking at upgrading graphics on my AMD machine. I was wondering what you guys thought would be better, getting another 6600gt and SLI or moving up to a 6800gs

sell the 6600gt, and save up a little bit more, then buy a 7800gt

If your going to move up, move to at least a 6800gt but like juice daddy said, I would save for the 7800GT

GS is better than GT... It would be worth the wait to save for the 7800GT.
