Default Re: To GTX 280....or 4870....

To play at 1280x960 I would go for the 4870 or the GTX 260. Don't worry about the 512 Mb, I've tried some of the most demanding games at 1920x1200 with 4xAA (look at my post at benchmark section) and the card really shines even at this very high resolution.

The price is very similar, so it's up to your personal preferences, both cards will perform superb at 1280x960, I don't think you need a GTX 280, it's still too expensive for the extra performance you will get at that resolution.
