Yes, please do it... Definitely worth it, 560 bucks? I'd say it's a no-brainer..

You could eventually upgrade your 1440 x 900 resolution later on too and then kick some serious ass

*shrug* Sure, if you have the money and want them then do it. I dunno that you will see huge benefits at first but as quad sli gets hammered out you will prolly enjoy it.

unless all you play right now is Crysis then you will not see much gain at all. even with Crysis you are probably close to max setting at the res you play at now.

I could upgrade as well but what would be the point.
