GeForce GTX 280 or 9800 X2? Which one would you buy?
This is the question I'm pondering now. The GTX 280 has 1GB of dedicated memory as well as the new architecture. It will probably be better for future games. The only obvious drawback is the price. I can get a 9800 GX2 for well under $500, and it offers similar, if not better performance. The 9800 GX2 is limited to 512MB of memory for each card though, and that can be a drawback in higher resolutions and in future games. Money is not a huge issue for me, but I'm torn between the two. I respect the opinions of the people on this board. Which would you pick up?
BTW. I'll be selling my 8800 GTs very soon to upgrade.
