you could pick up a 4850x2 which performs almost exactly the same as the 4870x2 (most games it has only 2 fps difference) for only $310 at newegg

a 4850x2 is a single slot video card ;) but its also made by saphire and so I wouldnt touch it with a very very long stick.... the GTX 285s have been hovering under $400 lately though, I know I seen one for $339 the other day and almost jumped on it. the GTX 275 is also a pretty damn nice card for the price, normally coming very close to the GTX 285 for close to $100 less.

Last I checked the HD 4850 X2 was a dual slotter.

Hey hope to finally see a review of the eVga gtx275 FTW. One of the fastest ( if not the fastest) 275 as of yet.

I own it and wish to see what it does against it's containers.. No review anywhere on the web!!
