bye bye sli

just ordered a 8800gt yesterday this to be exact Newegg.com - EVGA 512-P3-N802-AR GeForce 8800GT Superclocked 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail
so i will be cleaning out the sli'ed 7600gt's. they served me well over the last few months i'm gonna be sad to see them go. but on the other hand what a performance boost from this one 8800gt. any one want to buy a 7600 or both? and i will be selling or giving away that 700mhz pIII i got too.

so i'm gonna run one more 3dmark06 in current setup post it hear then see what my gains are with this new card. i've been thinking about adding a q6600 and ultra-120 extreme. what do you think i'll gain point wise from just the new card?

My XFX 8800GTS render 7-8Ks more in Aquamark and about 2Ks in 3DMark06 than the pair of XFX 8600GT in SLI I'm using now on W3 (both with the same setup). Hope this help with the comparison. I love the smell of new hardware, enjoy.
