I don't actually know whether SLI requires an OS-level driver.  My
recollection, though, is that the 6600 chipset doesn't support SLI.

The fastest of those cards, by a large margin, is the Radeon 4350 card.
 That one I actually bought when I rebuilt babylon5, and just got it
back from warranty repair a couple of weeks ago (it failed after two
weeks).  Fortunately I didn't spend that much on it in the first place.
