Maybe they can't? I guess we shall see.

Oh and 4870 is $250 with Grid included and there are GTX260's hitting that price point now. So is that GTX280 worth $410 now? See everyone can do that.

But I know what you were getting at. IMO with 4870 and GTX260 hitting the $250 mark, I do not believe the 280 and 4870x2 are worth the asking price now.

A) You're seriously splitting hairs over 10 dollars? Do you really need the definition of "about" spelled out for you? I.E. "about $400.00"? In ANY definition of the word, $410 can be described as about 400 dollars. Talk about grasping for straws in order to pick an e-fight.

B) If you had bothered reading the thread (hell, he even quoted it for you), you would have seen that what he said was in response to another poster saying the HD4870x2 "cost about the same" as the 280GTX. He didn't "start a $$$ comparison" as you say.

C) Within this specific discussion, who said anything about the standard HD4870? Besides you of course. Oh wait... no one.

D) Not everyone wants GRID, so IDK WTF your point is with that one. Besides anyone with google can find a bajillion offers of the same ilk with Nvidia cards. That's a total wash not to mention pointless.

You may remove the foot from your mouth now.

Pssst... BTW, your rampant fanboyism is showing through.
