Default Re: Decide the fate of my new GTX280...

I say this is no brainer keep the GTX 280 and be happy, sure many people are happy with it..

The card should be plenty for the 1680x1050 res, specially since you said you never use AA plus you saved couple bucks.

If you sell the GTX 280 for only $300 you have to add up the loss to the cost of the HD 4870 x2 and that's a pretty lousy deal.

The 4870 x2 shines with higher AA use. Actually even the 4870 scales better with higher AA or higher resolution.
