That's a pretty good price if you get that rebate back.

Yeah, you got a hell of a break man. In the next week or two the price will probably be down to $400 and you'll have saved $250 on a $650 purchase.

if ati prices 4870x2 well, maybe less then 400 ;)

GTX 280 is more then enough for 1680x1050

depends, i really want to see more reviews

there so few things that i would miss out going ATI

1) not a big ATI driver fan
2) would miss nHancer
3) no SSAA
4) Multi-GPU, always more work then single card
5) can't really set Multi-GPU profiles in detail
6) no AA compability options for games that have AA issues
7) number 5 and 6 would have to wait month + for ATI to maybe add profile
8) 1gb buffer would probably cost me 550

I'm using a CRT so I tend to go to 2048x1536 in most games, and 1600x1200 in others. Crysis is the only recent game I can't play at 1600x1200 with the framerates I want.

If the 2Gb 4870x2 was $400 I'd give multi-GPU a try. :p
