If the 2Gb 4870x2 was $400 I'd give multi-GPU a try.
CRT? those things are still around

Not like mine.

A couple years ago I paid $150 shipped for one of the best CRTs ever made, as a refurb. 22", 2048x1536 @ 85Hz. I found one at another store for $900 brand new.

Its probably 5 years old now, but I still haven't found a reason to pay $600 for an LCD that has a lower max resolution and looks like crap at anything but that resolution.

If this thing ever dies on me I'll invest in a good LCD... or maybe I'll just bust out my old 19" NEC CRT. That thing will still do 2048x1536 @ 60Hz.

These are really damn tempting now. I'm just debating on when would be a good time to get one. I'm thinking the price slashes are getting close to being done now, but it would suprise me to see them hit $400 after a rebate. If the 55nm is supposed to be release Q3, then buying a card in about a week would allow the 90 days to be most of Q3.

5) can't really set Multi-GPU profiles in detail
6) no AA compability options for games that have AA issues
7) number 5 and 6 would have to wait month + for ATI to maybe add profile
8) 1gb buffer would probably cost me 550

You could get SLI GTX260 for $600

I say GTX280 will hit $350 by end of July, and that's where it's going to stay.

If they hit $350. That is good, but the power supply requirements for 2 is way way way too much.

I would need to get a new power supply too.
