Switching VC

I'm planning on moving the 8800 GTS to the A8N32-SLI Deluxe (16x2).
Actually is in a A8N-SLI Deluxe (16 or 8+8 in SLI config).
Right now the A8N32 have two XFX8600GT in SLI.
W3 is my Flag ship (A8n32) has better Psu and faster ram and CPU and, as I say, is running with 2 8600 in sli.
Would I keep it that way or wil the change brings some improvement in performance?

I think the 8800 would benefit from more CPU horsepower. The dual 8600 bench lower I think.

Water Cooling???

Switch the cards, BSOD on W3.Try a quick fix (after all is 'only' video card installation, no?). No go. Another fix..., nada. Recovery console,...BSOD, Win Automated Recovery Sys (F2),...Blue screen. Change vc slot, nope. At this level it won't get out of post without BSOD. So, Fedora went in. Installation was flawless, but it won't run. The thing is Wolf3 is off line and so Wolf2 and W1. Using a new build for a friend's daughter to be installed next thursday. I wil leave them till tomorrow. Sigh...
