i wouldn't go with two 6600's. get a single 6800GT or vanilla.
for cpu, i'd get a 3200+ and if that's not enough cpu power, just overclock it as those go high.
should trim the costs.
good build and funny title btw. only you canadians.
...Now that I have your attention I could use some help (damn that was lame wasn't it?). Alright well i'm in the market for a new computer, used mainly for gaming. I'm hoping to spend about $2000 Canadian or about $1600 for you Americans. I recently got a quote for a computer but after taxes it's about $200 too much. So if there are any suggestions as to where I could trim some costs I'd be very appreciative.
Note: Prices listed are American.

I am hoping to lower that total by about $100-200, any help would be awarded with my eternal gratitude. Also are the two video cards going to be good for gaming? Or should I look for a better single card instead? Thanks for the help.
