Default 6600 + 6800?

does the 6600gt support sli?

I have this one, http://www.monarchcomputer.com/Merch...y_Code=VC-EVGA

and I might get a 6800 ultra later, so I wonder, will the 6600 play nicely with the 6800?

to SLI both cards need to be of the same type

for example

6600 GT + 6600 GT
not 6600 GT + 6800 GT

Sorry matey.

Yeah, you can't mix and match. I think you can do that with ATI crossfire though?

darn, oh well the 6600 gt prices are dropping so, would I be better of getting another 6600gt or should I get a 6800?

6800 Ultra would be best as SLI only supports something like 50 games.
