Save your money you would notice a drop in frame rates by selling your sli setup. Save up money for a month then buy a gtx 260 and THEN you'll see some MAJOR differences

have we forgotten that multigpu setups are best at high resolutions?
9800GTX = 8800GTX
8800GT slightly crippled 9800GTX
so of course 8800GT SLI beats 9800GTX.

The only worthwhile upgrade is a new CPU, even so i wouldn't bother since 8800GT SLI games just nicely if your 5000+ is clocked 3ghz+

8800GT's in SLI definitely would beat the 9800GTX.

Perhaps you should wait for 9800GTX+ (55nm version of 9800GTX)
