Um yeah I've already heard your story about how you RMAed 6800GTs and they "accidently" sent back two 7800GTXs instead, can't see how you'd be unhappy with that.

You can't possibly go higher than what you have unless you were to were to get some quad socket dual core opteron setup going, but then your pretty SLI wouldn't work.

Locking for obvious reasons
