L1qu1d, should I get another 9800gx2 to go quad SLI for 290 USD. Or should I upgrade to a BFG GTX280 OCX for free using the trade up program and eventually get another for SLI? I love FPS games like crysis as well as RTS's and I play at 1920 x 1020 res.

Honestly? Trade up, I mean i love the quad sli, and they do outperform the 280 GTXs in sli in alot of the benchmarks...but the 280 GTX has alot to grow, its still in it mature drivers, and SLI will be more beneficial.

Plus the 1 gig RAM would be a bonus for bigger monitor in the future (plus games that require higher Textures:) )

Even I just ordered tri 280 GTX OCXs through my friend's company.

Although I'm not going to use them till 2 weeks from now, I'm very happy with the quad performance for now:)  (In other words I'm lazy to swap em hahaha)

My opinion, where performance stands to date (it can change depending on drivers)

280 GTX trisli > 4870 x2 CF > 4850 X2 CF > 9800 GX2 sli > 280 GTX sli > etc..
