I'm currently running a single 6600 GT in my A8n-Premium and I am
debating whether to use available funds purchase another 6600 GT for an
SLI setup, or sell the 6600 GT on Ebay and purchase a single 6800 GT.
Picking up a second 6600 GT is the no-hassle option but the 6800 GT
does offer 256Mb of memory. For BF2, F.E.A.R. and Quake 4, which setup
might be the better choice for the money?

FWIW, I'm running an AMD64 3000+ clocked to 2.3 GHz and 2 gig of RAM,
powered by a Seasonic S-12 600w PSU.

6800gt definately !!! Even faster then 2x6600gt

I think there are the tech comparisons to make, more expensive is the 6800gt using
a gpu that is 325 to 350 mhz and 16 pixel pipe lines (maybe that's where it gets more
expensive?), DDR RAM of what... 700 to 800 mhz?

Then the 6600gt has a gpu of 500 mhz and only 8 pixel pipe lines, DDR RAM of
900 to 1000 mhz. So, even at cheaper prices those speed differences compensate
for something and it's still not as good of a card. Anyone know what the real
difference is?

Amount of pixel pipe lines and memory-bit-band-widths of either 128 or 256?

If I spent $189 on a 6600gt with 256 mb RAM, stepping up from my ti4600 with
GPU of 300 mhz, 128 mb of DDR 600 RAM, how much of a step or steps is that?

I don't know how many people consider running SLI to be no-hassle.
