    Other than Ram it would be a step backwards.

    Your setup good to go for quite awhile.

    The three gigs of ram not going to help unless running multi hi rez monitors.

    I would. And I came from 5870 Crossfire which ran fine with most games but the constant need for Crossfire profiles was killing me. Plus anytime the GPUs ran below 90% usage in game I felt it right away.
