Default I change my mind about the GTX280

I kept saying that my two 9800GTx running in SLI was better and faster then my one BFG GTX280 OCX.I ran my two 9800GTx in SLI for about a month and it would get 16,350 in 3DMark06 running at 780/1900/2200 and running Crysis at very high settings at 1920x1200 would get 37FPS ,plus it was a few frames higher in other games.But I decided to put my BFG GTX 280 OCX back in and see if I could tell that if it is any better.It maybe just my eyes but even 2D look better.Running 3DMark06 I would get 16,006 and in Crysis I would get 35FPS ,but it look so much more sharper and in Crysis my lows did'nt dip as low as it did with my two 9800GTx running in SLI.It may be a placebo effect but ever game I ran just looked so much better.So I will be sending my two ASUS EN9800GT ULTIMATE/HTDP/512M back to newegg.com,I got lucky and they are not going to charge me the 15% restocking fee.But I can't make up my mind if I want to get another GTX 280 or wait or buy something else.I would like to get a Q9550 but then I would have to get a new mother board.I thought about buying another Q6600 since I would more then likely get a GO and be able to overclock a little more.I have a B3 that I run all the time at 3240gigs at 1.37v.I just don't know if getting another GTX 280 running at 1920x1200 would be worth it without a faster CPU.
