Another "Aye" for waiting.

You have a great card.

Is there some particiular performance issue that you are having?

imho, unless you are sitting around staring at all the cash that you do not know what to do with... keep the GTX.

Sorry... not trying to be an arse, just practical. If you need to plan, budget, trade, sell or save to get this "upgrade"... you would be wise to pass, save and wait.

alright, thanks guys, im probably gonna keep the gtx until some decent cards come out that show some big improvement. as far as sli goes, im gonna see how much the price of the 8800gtx drops when the 9800gtx comes out. so far i havent been falling behind in games. i get about 30 fps in crysis on a 1900x1200 resolution. and thats good enough for me. i wouldnt spend 400 bucks to se a increase in frame rates by like 10-15.
