If you plan on getting a new lcd that supports 1920x1200 in the near future before you upgrade to another card then get a GTX280

The GTX280 is a waste of money at that res. The 4870 can handle that with lots of aa and AF.

And only pure nvidia fanboys will recommend you to buy the GTX280 when you are playing at that res.
Good post.
