Default Re: geforce 280 gtx sli debating about 480 sli...

Hey Wheeljack... I moved up to an i7 950 processor, running on a Asus Sabertooth X58 mobo with 6 GB of Corsair Dominator memory... Including the previous purchase, I spent a total of $1915 for the entire setup (I have already sold my old Q9550 for $200 on ebay, waiting for the rest of my old stuff to sell - hope to net at least $800 from this to help pay off the new purchase). I have been able to easily OC this puppy to 3.6 Ghz on air (using Prolimatech Megahalems rev. B cooler). My idle temps are around 40C for the CPU running up to about low-mid 50's on load... not bad...
Here is my new 3dmark Vantage score...

Thanks for all your advice...

Intel Core i7 950 @ 3.6 Ghz
Prolimatech Megahalems rev.B
Asus Sabertooth X58
6 GB Corsair Dominator DDR3
2 * NVIDIA Geforce GTX 480 SLI
Sound Blaster Xfi Fatal1ty
OCZ Agility 2 120 GB SSD
1200 W PSU
