Default Re: GeForce GTX 280 or 9800 X2? Which one would you buy?

I'm not so optimistic that the GTX 280 will fall in price anytime soon. It just costs too much to make that GPU and yields are just too poor. I agree that the card is overpriced, but we all know that the best performance comes with a premium price tag. I'm just looking for a card that will last me for a while. I'm leaning toward the GTX 280 for that reason. While the 9800 GX2 might be the better buy now, it may not look as good 6 months from now. Also, that 1GB of dedicated memory looks sweet for AA and aF in high resolutions.
