agh...still not sure what to get...i'm trying to watercool my system, so the 4870x2 would be cheaper even still in that respect, but ive heard the drivers for 4870x2 are terrible...any owners wanna chime in? another option i had is to buy gtx 280 right now, and then in a few months, get another 280 to put in sli...in the end this costs the most, but it'll keep build costs down right now...what do you all think of that idea?

I just sold my 4870x2 on eBay because the drivers haven't been so great. Going back to nVidia with a 260 core 216.

Definitely buy your stuff on eBay, 30% off everything right now! Check gotapex.com for the instructions I posted there. If you pay with a PayPal balance the cashback is instant which is awesome! Got my GTX 260 core 216 for $145 after the cashback and a 20% off eBay coupon I had...
