It strikes me as odd how people at first told everyone the ultra is a waste of money and none should buy it and now that you are thinking about selling it or trading it their opinions change. This is just an observation, I'm an ultra owner myself and like everybody else I tell you this: Don't.

I have to agree with most everyone else, keep the Ultra. I have two EVGA 8800 Ultra Superclocked cards and man are they some beasts. I'd say maybe look into getting a second Ultra if you can find one in your price range. I got both of mine off of Ebay for $400 a piece a few months ago. Even if it's a different brand or different XFX edition, you can just flash the XFX Ultra Extreme bios to the second card you get.

The Ultra to me is like sex. I wouldn't part with it for anything. I'm hoping nVidia puts out a single GPU card upgrade with the 9900 Series. But even with that the Ultra will be able to play any game for atleast a year maxed out, especially how games are now.

Thanks for the info, I will be keeping it, I actually don't game at all, was purely for benching and messing around and have no real need for the 9xxx series as we have a baby coming October and would be fired if I buy anything after this month is over . Nothing like a free Ultra though
Safe and sound in my case for years to come now
Thanks for the input fellas, extreme impulse buyer here but luckily I waited for the responses

That's because there's a big difference between advising someone TO BUY something vs. advising them to sell something they've already bought to get something different. Two totally different decision making processes ... with 2 different outcomes being the norm rather than the exception, I'd say.

Dude, the 8800 Ultra is the best 8 series GPU, don't downgrade it to a 8800GTS.
Although, since 9900 is rumored to come out soon, and you wish to upgrade, this would be a good time to sell it because it's gonna drop in price when the new GPUs come out.
