Moving on

So with christmas coming around Ive found myself wanting to upgrade again.
I plan on going to an mATX i7 system sometime next year but i want to atleast change my graphics to make the process a little smoother.

Ive loved my 8800gt Sli setup but since I wanna go matx I want a single card solution. Now Ive been on the forums long enough to not have to ask for advice on stuff like this (usually google solves most problems) but Im just a bit lost on the performance of these newer cards.

Basically, should I replace my Sli setup with a single 5850 or 5870.
Will I see improvement or pretty much the same thing for less of a power strain on PSU?

All Ive been playing lately is Dota, CS:S, assassin's creed(trying to beat so i can play the new one), Heroes of Newearth. But there are alot of new PC titles coming out and I wanna beable to play some of the higher end ones.

Is it worth the cash?, Wait for fermi?, Go nvidia instead?

Opinions, thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

Check out this thread before you go MATX, you might only have to sacrifice your case

Ah ive already considered this but the airflow with the A05 is awkward, and i would have to cut a hole in the top for some air to the GPU.

I plan on keeping my TRUE as well.
