I'm looking at a few cards for an i7 build i'm doing for a friend. I saw the much acclaimed 4850x2 up on the egg and it's in our price range so I have that on the list as a possibility, but I'm concerned about the driver issues that many reviewers are complaining about in the reviews. We're looking for a good card that will run high-vh settings @ 1920x1200 for $180-$250... we would prefer a gtx 285 but they're (still!) overpriced, though we will miss physX. There's the possibility of SLI/CF down the line and we'll be pushing an 850w corsair power supply.

Other cards under consideration:
xfx 4890
gtx 260 55nm
xfx 5770


edit: and how is it that gtx 260 compares better than 4890 on gpureview? am i misreading? http://www.gpureview.com/show_cards....=608&card2=604

Yeah that was at release, I'm sure it's just like my crossfired 4850s and I have ZERO driver issues since the 9.3's
