Default Re: HD 4870 vs GTX 260

Well I plan on staying at this res for a good long while (1680 1050). Most people I know do not have higher so the complaining about the card not performing as good at really high resolutions is a moot point for most folks. Most folks do not have a freaking 30 inch monitor but so many folks seem to think everyone has one. I think the most common resolution is actually 1280 1024 still. With that in mind I took the better deal and got a 4870 instead of a GTX 260 (this was before the major price cuts started coming around).
