Gotta disagree with you here. 4850x2 is solid priceerformance wise, but its super power hungry at idle, ridiculously loud at load, and relies on crossfire support in the drivers. The GTX 285 doesn't have any of these issues and it performs very close in a majority of titles.

AMD's best value right now is without a doubt the 1gb 4870. Same price ($189) as the GTX 260 and it has a performance advantage in a majority of games.
