Yep that chip will rock for ocing.. just remember that 2 X 6600GT's (SLI'ed) is not that good for gaming now.. most games arn't optimised for SLI use.. so actually a 6800GT right give better preformance in some games.. ect..

indeed, buuuut when companies start optimising for sli 2 6600GT's would be just like, probly better, than 1 6800GT. that said, probly not going to happen for a few more months at least, perhaps a year or longer, because in reality, how many people have SLi at the moment as a percentage of people who play games....

For SLI'ED 6600GT's you need an insane power supply

6800GT is cheaper and better, but 6600GT's is a cheaper way to set a 6600GT world record

I really don't think that companies will take the time to write for dual graphics cards, especially when Niv and ATI are concentrating more on their single card solutions. Some games might make use of SLI/Crossfire, but I think thats going to be more of a special feature than a norm.
