I wonder what the 4870x2 is going to be priced at. If Amd priced it at $499 would nvidia have to lower the gtx 280 price even lower?

Nvidia might ended up selling more GTX cards then ATI. I bet Nvidia will play same game with low price on GTX280 compared to HD4870 X2 as ATI did with HD4870. Also Nvidia is probably working on GX2 card.

I was looking at power consumption charts.. is there a power supply that could handle a quad GTX280 system? 0.o 2 of those under load consume more power then quad 9800x2's according to the graph I saw.

If Nvidia releases GX2 based on GTX280 i assume it will have 256bit mem bus with 1gb for each GPU (2gb) and could more like GTX260 based then GTX280.

Actually i really do. GTX260 on 256bit mem bus is possible with 512mb. See if all those brains like Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, Albert Einstein listened the morons like you who were telling them "You have no grasp of reality do you?, they would not accomplish anything...

Nah. It would not cause GTX260 is faster then 8800GT chip but also to have GDDR5 on 260GX2 board on 256bit bus.
9800GX2 barely beats single GTX280 or in many games single GTX260. 9800GX2 against two GTX260 is not even close.
