you forgot the OS $150 and a few other things
What you are failing to understand is that if you build that system, it will totally destroy the one you are looking at now due to the video card alone. Even if you have to pay an extra $150, it's well
worth it. I don't think you realize just how much more powerful the 7800gt is over the 6600 vanilla. The 6600 vanilla has a 300MHz core clock speed with 8 pixel pipelines. The 7800GT has a 470MHz clock speed with 20
pixel pipelines. The 6600 vanilla has 128MB/256MB of 128-bit DDR RAM clocked at 500MHz. The 7800GT has 256MB of 256-bit GDDR3 RAM clocked at 1.1GHz
. It would totally annihilate TWO
6600 vanilla's in SLI. There is no contest. The 7800GT utterly destroys the pitiful 6600 vanilla, and if you can have a system that has it for a measly $150 more, it is WELL
