Default Re: Upgrading Core2Quad to Corei7, running gtx 275 SLI

Possibility to upgrade to Core i9 sometime in the future is the main reason i would go for x58 and not p55 motherboard.
Just recently I ran across couple of reviews comparing Core i7 to Core2Quad on multi gpu platforms and came to a conclusion that I could gain some additional FPS right now by changing my platform to x58,Core i7 combo, plus I would be ready for future CPU upgrade.
I would really appreciate if someone that recently went from Core2Quad to Core i7 and runs some serious SLI setup at the same time, would share his experience.

Thanks
