The GTX is cheaper by about $100 or so....my mistake, but it does outperform the 4870x2 in most Game Benches...
Yes, but there's mixed reviews on this...
Maximum PC mag. gave the preferred choice to the 4870 x2 over the GTX 295...
NCIX.com - Buy Diamond Radeon HD 4870 X2 750MHZ 2GB GDDR5 2XDVI PCI-E Video Card - 4870X2PE52G In Canada.
Yes indeed! NCIX has a rebate on this card as well! With the rebate it makes it cheaper than the GTX 295.
NCIX.com - Buy XFX GeForce GTX 295 602MHZ 1792MB 2.21GHZ GDDR3 PCI-E Dual DVI-I HDMI HDCP Video Card - GX295NHHFF In Canada.
$50 more than the 4870 x2..
After getting the 4850 I have to say, I'm quickly becoming an ATI fan
Anyway, to put the subject back on thread topic, I would suggest getting the gtx 280... It's at a smokin' price right now and apart from numbers and benchmark results, you won't notice much difference in game.
