    The forthcoming nvidia 6600 series is currently making waves given its ability to link two cards together a la voodoo 2 some years back, the performance and specs are quite breathtaking as well (especially for a budget gfx card) and right now, I'd definitely like to pick one up but does anyone know how it compares to a 9800/9800XT?

    Wait until its done the benchmark rounds at the usual sites. I've seen some vague stuff posted by nvidia on its performance with doom 3, but i'd want to see it tested with Far-Cry and others. If it gives excellent performance as a single card, then i'll probably get one (assuming it is THAT much faster than my current 9800 pro), But not if it needs 2 cards SLI'd - making it twice the cost, and twice the hassle of getting rid when it comes time to selling.
