I think you'd be better off w/ 1 6800 GT than 2 6600 in SLI; SLI is kind of kinky and doesn't work all the time. You definatly should wait for the new cards to come out; they'll drop the current card price by a whole lot.

the problem with waiting for the next-gen is that its a ways off. i'm going to go for a 6600GT as soon as i get the money to do so.
