I've never seen Warhammer included in any Benchmark. It's probably not very resource intensive. What other games do u like to play the most?

What card do you have presently?

System Summary?

If it is between the GTX285 and the HD4870x2 and they cost the same ,the HD4870x2 would be the better deal.

4870x2 is the best of the two, by a good margin.

Depending on your screen resolution and levels of AA/AF, the margin might be more or less.

The 285 being a single gpu solution will provide smoother gameplay unless you don't notice microstutter. Although the X2 will have faster frame rates in most games. Nvidia seems to do a better job on their drivers as well.

as a current 4870x2 and 285 owner... go with the 285 the 4870x2 has driver issues.

Warhammer Online used to perform better on ATI, that was like 5 months ago. I don't know what it is now.

Price wise the cheapest 4870X2 is $409 after rebate, and personally I wouldnt trust that model in the long run. There are better vendors but you're going to have to pay more.

On the other hand, you can pick up a GTX 285 for $349.
