Default Re: 9800 GX2 or GTX 260?

9800 GX2, that is easy. It has bigger power consumption, but is significantly faster (20-40% for most games). No problems at all even in Vista x64, as NVIDIA SLI is mature technology (unlike much younger ATI Crossfire).

GTX 260 is no competition for 9800GX2. Even GTX 280 comes hardly close for most games.
