Default Re: 9800 GX2 or GTX 260?

Well, I am SLI user from 2x6800ULTRA times (through 2x7800, 2x7900, 1x8800), and current 9800GX2 is absolutely problem-free. Argument about memory si true, but I have not found any game (except Crysis) that I could not run maxed-out at 2560x1600 (I usually do not use FSAA at this insane resolution, not needed). GTX 260 could NOT do that...

9800GX2 is still the king (there is absolutely no reason to exchange it for single GTX 280, not to mention GTX 260). Only 2x GTX 260 in SLI would be better.

Q9550@3.4 + Asus P5Q Premium + 16GB RAM + 2xVelociraptor 300GB + 4xWD Black 1TB RAID-5 on Adaptec 5805 + PoV GTX580 + Dell 3008WFP + Windows 7 x64
Xbox 360 Elite + Kinect + Onkyo receiver + Acoustic Energy Aelite 1/3/center speakers + 46" FullHD Samsung TV
