1 7800. The benifits of Sli, are not that great believe it or not.

The 7800 easily. The two 6600's might be fast combined but the hardware is older than the 7800.

Yep one 7800 beats all other SLI combinations, even 2 6800GT's believe it or not. Unless you're going with dual 7800's, there's no reason to SLI.

Even with two 7800's its pretty pointless. For the money, that wouldn't perform.

SLI isnt really nessecary. No game out these days really need SLI. A 7800 will wipe the floor with two 6600GT's.
