Not sure about 4870 vs 285..but wiht 1920 x 1200 the GTX 285 should be fine for most games (may have turn down AA / AF on some)......

Guys...I've seen 1920 x 1200 single 280 vs 280 SLI vs 22"...and yes...when I went from 22" to 1920 x 1200 I DID have to tone down some AA / AF ...to get Max FPS.......folks that claim they don't simply don't see Max FPS like I do......
