Default Need opinions...

watsup guys,
Im wondering if I should sell my ultra with the hr-03 plus or without for around $550-600 bucks and then go for 8800gt in slior ati 3870 in crossfire(never thought i would be saying this)

Then i can rma my board say its some defect and get a new one and sell it, i have the p35-ds3r.

Is this a good idea? is this worth it?

i would appreciate anyones suggestions.

thanks

Edit : Sorry, I didn't read your post properly. Yea if you can sell it for $550-600 then yea get either two 8800GT (or HD3870), it should give you around 30% increase in performance.

But I have another idea, why don't just buy one 8800GT or HD3870 and then upgrade to 9 series

Why are you selling a P35? What do you want to get instead?

I didn't know that you couldn't use that board.

Man, if I was you I know what I would do. I would bank on that Ultra while you still can and save that cash for the Geforce 9800.
