You also can get a "cheap" SLI board, like Revs said, and add a 2nd GTX 260 in the future, if you are not happy.

I was just ready to come to a conclusion, then your sage posts have made me think again

I think the 285 GTX is out of the running. For only 10 more I can get a 4870x2 which seems a better bet.

However its the question of whether I should spend 30% less and get a 260gtx.

Decisions Decisions.

The money I have set aside for this is not important money. eg its not money needed for bills etc, so its not that much waste.
