I hope the 4870 prompts a nice price drop. Go AMD!

This is about the 10th time I have seen you complaining about the price. Get a job or STFU.

Its expensive there is no denying that. I don't really think the market is that big for $650 cards anymore.

I know im not biting. I will wait this out patiently and see what ATI brings to the table but in the end I will probably end up with a GTX 260.

For me, at least, the GTX 280 is just...no. The 260 as it is now is at my current extreme upper budget range, but with a completely stock rig it may not be the best fit either. So I continue to wait for the 4870 information blackout to lift...

Actually i think the best would be x48 motherboard with two HD 4870X2. Extremely fast system for much less money then 790SLI + SLI GTX280.

GTX280 is great card, but $650 is just too much. For SLI $1300, holy crap....

I think Nvidia lost perception for the market. I think 9800GTX+ is an answer for many of us including myself

That is probably the rout that I will take unless I can get a GTX 260 for around $350.00.

Its just not worth it to me any more to have the absolute best when the price is so high.
