Default Re: 9800 GX2 or GTX 260?

I have a BFG GTX280 OCX and my two 9800GTx running in SLI at 800/1950/2100 is quite a bit faster in 95% of the games I play and the few games that the GTX280 is faster ,it only by a small amount.I had two GTX280 running in SLI and over half of my games it was faster to just run one of the GTX 280's.I game at 1920x1200 ,you need to game at 2560x1600 and have a very fast CPU because my Quad 6600 at 3.24 is just not fast enough.I never notice any microstudders in my games with my SLI set-up.I would say the 9800GX2 is the best bang for the bulk.But if I had it to do over I would go with two GTX 260 in SLI.You can find them for as low as $249 and with rebate $219 ,so you could get two GTX260 192 for $440.I think as newer games come out the 896mb and the 448bit wider Memory Interface will come in handy.
