Default Re: A few questions for recent GTX 280 owners

You should go with the ATI HD 4870 now... I had the 8800gtx for almost 2 years and it was a very good upgrade.

I wanted the GTX 280 too but 2 reasons I didn't buy it. First the card is very noisy and secondo: it's already obselete because it will be replace by the .55nm version very soon.

Hd4870 in automatic mode, I never hear it. Quiet like the 8800gtx.

You should buy the 4870 and later buy the GTX 280 .55nm version. The 4870 will still have a very good resale value.
