Re: Two GTX280 in SLI > Quad SLI with 9800GX2?
Definitely get the GTX 280s, no doubt about it. The 9800GX2 was, IMO, a mistake from Nvidia. It made people think they could max out things like Crysis with Quad-SLI and run like butter... yet it was always limited by 512MB frame buffer.
GTX 280s in SLI have made 9800GX2s redundant, and would be a huge upgrade.
