Why on earth would you sell the rig that you have in your sig? Just upgrade your vide card to an 8800ultra if you're that hardcore.

Wait...., I thought the striker extreme was a way better board. Just extremely expensive. Am I thinking of a different model?

The Strike Extreme is not a way better board. There are cheaper alternatives, that can perform just as well. It's just extremely expensive.
