Agreed.

You will need a new motherboard though and that CPU will cause a bottleneck.

Should get a new mobo and CPU before getting another Ultra... Though it won't make much of a difference.

Ultra's in Tri-SLI is asking for heat issues. Yes, they'll run in TRI SLI, but it'll be HOT. The 9800GTX is the best choice for TRI-SLI, since they run cooler.

edit: wow you use a 19" panel. you do know that you arent even seeing the benefit of the second ultra at that low of a res right?

so of course people are going to scream bottleneck bottleneck at you, you are at a cpu limited resolution.

get the third ultra but please go buy a real monitor, like dell 3007wfp or something, then look at the 790i and some kinda nicely overclockable cpu like e8400 q6600 q9450
