yea expect a big drop in price soon as 4870 comes out..either that or expect a gtx270....which most likely will be the case.

CF HD4870 wont work on my mobo, also HD4500 doesn't give me any better performance then my single 8800GTX in most cases. Overall 4800 series is nice but not for me since the performance is not up to my 8800GTX setup.

I'm buying GTX280 not for Crysis (even though GTX280 in 1680*1050 should be perfect for Crysis). That game is really boring to me, but for other games especially for UT3 engine based games. This will make some room in my case single vs SLI 8800GTX and it will use less power.
