I was recently blessed with a bonus from the company I work for and my wife said I should upgrade and get the parts I want. Not being one to argue with such a smart woman ( :D ), I hopped online and started pricing things. I just in the last week got my new mobo and I was wondering if picking up a second 6600Gt or a single 6800 Ultra would be the best bet? I'll also be upgrading processors. Which do you think is the better bet....a P4 640 (3.2) OR P4 550 (3.4)? This setup will probably have to last me a year....

I would say Get a 6800Gt then Oc it to Ultra Speed Since 90 percent of the GT capable of doing that. However, If u could for another month or 2, u should definitely check next gen cards.

As for cpu I wouldnt suggest any upgrades so far, u wont see a dramatic improvemns over the one ur current using. I suggest either U wait for something innovative in fear future or going for AMD.

yah, hold out on ur 6600gt..which is a badass card...wait a month or so..and grab a 7800gtx :)

but one ultra would beat sli 6600gt.
