Unfortunately, or fortunately because I have a life, I have to pick and choose the games I play. Right now I'm playing Age of Conan. If the benches at HardOCP are accurate, even the GTX260 smokes a 4870 on AoC. So I'm going to go with the GTX 260/280.

Price is less of an issue for me than simply wanting the game to run the best that it can.

I am really wanting it just to play Crysis at high detail on 1680x1050 res. From what I have seen it will run any other game I will play fine. Some of the games I play are CoD4, Bioshock, Gears of War.
I have just been informed I won't have my GTX260 until Wed next week. NZ sucks for getting stuff on time. Really tempted to get a 280 as they have them in stock, but the price is just too much for me .
