Stay away from the 4850x2 its saphire, honestly wtf is so limiting about GTX 275s? they perform right on the heals of the GTX 285s... the GTX 275s where just on for $258, for the SC versions at that, 2 of those would out perform the 4850x2s for less cost. GTX 275s > 4890s IMHO.

I doubt they will be releasing either of the mentioned GPUs, their pretty well at the end of the road so to speak with the 2xx line ups.

I vote you get 2 GTX 275s, overclock the piss out of them and if thats not good enough grab another for good measure :p If you can pick them up around the $260 mark thats the best price vs performance you will see all around.
