Default Re: GTX480 SLI + 750i + q9550 3.8GHz

I had a dilemma very similar to yours couple of months ago.
I ended up replacing my q6600 @ 3.6 on 680i sli mobo with p55/i5 750.
Surely you'll get a lot by adding another gtx 480, but you'll also get a lot by replacing your mobo and cpu, especially in minimum framerate department and that's where it really counts.
btw. i run gtx275's in SLI.
