Default Graphic cards.

Hmmm...which graphic card would be better.

Dual 128MB PCI-Express x16 NVIDIA® GeForce™ 6600 GT - SLI Enabled
NVIDIA® GeForce 7800 with 256MB DDR3 Memory, Dual DVI and TV Out

Not sure.

Yep 7800GT will kill the dual 6600GT's cause SLI is just a big waste of money.

i agree with everyone

SLI is a waste of money when the other card one or two steps up is better and cheaper
