oh i can wait. Im in not that much of a hurry.. was just getting some opinions. Im an nvidia fan boy, but i was going to get the 4870x2. However, I wanted to just see if the gtx280 was/is worth it over it. basically, just getting some more opinions :P

My System Specs


What kind of screen are you running, High resolution? then the GTX280 would get my vote. But then, the 4870x2 never got properly tested, so I would hold it for a while, until the 4870x2 is released and benchmarked.
