While I generally would say the GF6800U is a waste of money, considering the BFG GF6800GT has been $349 at outpost. Right now outpost has the <A HREF="http://shop3.outpost.com/product/4082632?site=sa:Homepa..." target="_new">BFG 6800U OC for $449.</A> Not a bad option compared to a $400 GF6800GT, but still alot of money if a GT is found on sale.

There's nothing *wrong* with SLI, but it doesn't seem worth it for the cost/benefit ratio, especially since SLI motherboards are so much more expensive than their non-sli counterparts.

However, your pentium 3.2 is a decent CPU still, so a new AGP card makes sense for you. All you have to worry about is how much you have to spend... in the $200 range, get a Geforce 6600GT. $350ish will get you a 6800GT which is a faster choice. The ultimate would be a X800XT or X850XT if you can afford it.
