WAIT!!! Don't listen to these guys. Check the other thread where a bunch of cards including MikeC's have had overheating issues and a few just died already. Seems like some faulty cards made it to public. Also, ATI has the 4870 and 4870 x2 coming within the next month or so. The GTX 280 doesn't eat Crysis like everyone was expecting so there is no real sense in biting right now. Sit it out and see what ATI brings to the table - also Nvidia will have to drop prices to compete so now is the WORST time to buy one. Just hold off.

I've not seen a GX2 in action but from what i've read it's not as good as two GT's for SLI. All I was saying is for me, not having a problem with SLI, there is little to be gained by having a GTX280.

So in answer to your question, people shouldn't get a GTX280 to replace an SLI setup, be it a GX2 or GT's in SLI, if they don't have a micro-stuttering problem . That's just my opinion though.

... and where's this Elephant room?

GTX280 is about min FPS and that's where its value is. Also SLI GTX280 would be but i'm not that rich. Speaking of which i hope 4870X2 is a bit faster then GTX280. That's actually where my money will go. GTX280 is wonderful card but damn expensive.

The biggest problem with the GTX 280 is the price. The GPU is too big to come in a cheap board. You also have the 1GB of DDR3 RAM and the 512-bit memory interface. These help in gmaes now and will be even more help in the future. There is never a "perfect" time to buy a high-end video card. I'm sure the GTX 280 will drop in price over time, especially when it is no longer the flagship card. Still, don't expect to buy one for $300 or less any time soon. You can't even pick up a GeForce 8800 Ultra for that now.
