Re: 9800 GX2 or GTX 260?
Well, some people think "newer" cards must be better. Guess what, they are not :-) E.g. 9800GTX was slightly inferior to "old" 8800GTX, yet there are many people swearing on 9800GTX...
Numbers for BioShock @ 1920x1200 are clear:
9800GTX - 116FPS
GTX 260 - 69FPS
The Witcher, Oblivion, all are showing 9800GX2 as a clear winner.
Get it straight -- GTX 260 is (much) slower, yet it is still a good choice, as it is single core and less power hungry.
Depends what you prefer...
