I upgraded to two GTS g92's from two GT g92's and I thought it was worth it but that's just me...I would step-up to the 9800GTX IMO. There's a decent performance boost that's for sure.

No, the 9800GTX is just an OC'd 8800GTS 512mb.

So imo, I say keep your current card, or step up to an 8800GTS G92

Personally I'd wait 'til I see how the 9800GTX's overclock.

If it's not (much) better than the 8800GTS 512, then I'd say step up to the 8800GTS, myself. I'm very happy with mine, it runs and OC's like a champ (as you can see by my sig), and given that the 9800GTX is *really* (from all I've seen) just an overclocked 8800GTS ... I don't see how it's worth extra money unless it OC's substantially better.
