ah.
i would try to find a chart (on toms maybe) to compare performance results between sli'd 8800gt's and a single something-higherend. you could eaisly sell an 8800gt if the price per performance ratio is right.
If not i would do what your are planning on.

lol ya got me

how much more performance will ddr 1066 mhz be over 800?

is it worth getting the ddr2 1066 and possibly overclocking to 1200?

or is 800 fine?

800 is fine. You can OC PI Blacks to 1000 MHz with low vooltages, but when you get to 1066 MHz you have to like 2.3 volts? And get 4-5-4-12 timing? Not too sure, but you can OC to 1000MHz fine with PI blacks.
