hmm, I wonder what about a dual 3870 set up instead of a 8800 gts 512... I dont think it is worth the trouble.. but still..

It's definitely not bad, for the price drops. I'd do it, if I had some money.

you should start a new Rig, with dual HD3870's or is that 3700+ doing you well currently?

The 3700+ is hanging in there for general use, but I'm really in need of a better rig....multi-tasking and editing is just too slow on my backup. I'm currently saving.
