I should have some left over to get the 5870's. Not sure if I want to go with CrossFire right now, but I do know I'll get at least one.

Thanks for the advice, Redeemed!
Hey it's the least I could do. Be sure to post pics and impressions after the upgrades are all done!

One thing to remind you about- 1440x900 is uber low res for a card like a 5870. If performance isn't what you expected at first, start adding Anti-Aliasing to your games- you should be able to play most every game out right now with 100% maxed in-game settings at 1440x900 with varying levels of AA. Going CrossFire now might not yeild any substantial results because of the lower resolution. But once you get that new monitor you'll really see the 5870(s) come to life!
