Re: ByeBye GTX280, Hello 8800GTX
HD4870X2 perf will be satisfying. Running two HD4870 in CF and it performs great. Allmost no microstuttering, and CF is quit widespread supported right now. Only EU3games perf with AA is a tad slower then one GTX280, but it stays playable.
I'm gooing to the HD4870X2 2 GB because the 1 gig frambuffer comes in handy with Crysys VH. BTW, this CF combo is faster on my rig then a GTX280 which I tested in DX10VH 1600x1200 16AF 4xAA, but there is some swapping and stuttering probably due framebufferlimits rather then CF issues.
