I knew zero would kick in when it comes to PSU, listen to zero cause he is the PSU pro

If you do "happen" to go dual gtx 280 your gonna also need to super clock that quad to at least 3.8ghz-4ghz to see a decent performance increase to balance out the 2x gtx 280. But I don't see your that stupid or blinded by fanboism

Keep in mind, 58xx refresh on its way, real soon, so is fermi, stay tune for a price war. (most likely only from the red side)

ya didn't check his specks then the 5870 is a much better deal as you would need to spend at least $100 on a new PSU so either go for the 5870 now or wait and possibly save $50-100 dollars if you wait a month.

And please keep it civil in here.

Oh and $180 used for a GTX 280 is WAY too much.
