I think the money I would have to pay to upgrade my cards, and then immediately get a CF compatible motherboard doesn't justify the performance increase.

i'm sorry i didn't know that you can't Crossfire on your 780i

my apologies

then you are left with one choice to Keep the GTX285's especially your cards are under the lifetime EVGA warranty

Yeah...lesson learned...next time I invest in a technology product, I'll do my research and spend a little more up front, since it'll probably save money in the future. But yeah, EVGA's lifetime warranty is amazing...if I traded for 5870's, the only brand I would get if XFX, and only if it came with the lifetime warranty in tact. Anwyays, thanks for the input everyone. Much appreciated!
