Thanks guys. You probably saved me time, money and the hassle. I'll probably just get more RAM then.

8800 GTS 512 is cheaper an there is not much diff between them so save you cash and buy a 8800GTS 512 and then you can SLI it and you'll have one hell of a GPU set up

I would definitely SLI, but I have a P35 board. Would the 3870 X2 work with my board? Would it even be worth upgrading? Right now, I'm playing Crysis and I'm getting 30 FPS on all High settings.

I have to disagree. I rebuilt a system for a freind who decided to switch from his 8800GTX to a 9800GTX. It cost him about $50 after selling his 8800GTX, so it was nt to expensive. The performance gains where very noticeable. The 3Dmark06 score went up dramatically. He ended up with an 840 core OC.

To the poster,
Going from an 8800GTS G92 to the 9800GTX IMO wouldnt be worth it. Unless you can sell your card and drop less then $50, I wouldnt do it personally.

Yeah, I was planning on selling it and then buying the 9800GTX, but I guess everyone agrees that it would not be worth it.

You money would be better spent elsewhere, you look like you'd need a sound card

Not worthy it in your case. 9800GTX is the G92 8800GTS with higher potential OC. I would go for SLI because the price is around $200 now if I have budget.

Agreed

Personally I went with the 9800gtx only because I had no graphics card since this is a brand new build. If the 8800gtx was less than $400 when I purchased I would have gotten that.
