On a side note:
4870X2 here I coooooooommeee!!!

On another side note: LOL! the GTX 280 gets beaten in every single test except for Crysis and WiC
lol. No they are not. I can run very high at 1600x1200 and get 37 fps. If I tried running at high with 4xaa, I would probably be viewing a slide show.

Would you like me to prove it?

Ultras have to be the longest lasting cards ever (Performance competitiveness wise)

They were the best when they came out and they're still the best single gpu's around right now

They won't be the "best" when the HD48XX's and GTX280/60 come out but they'll still be pretty darn good

ok, we are talking about the 280 right "THE 280" the thing that is said to be GODLY,
therefore it suppose to beat everything available by good margin otherwise it is just a better video card nothing more true?

I have not been keeping up... So is the GTX 280 around 3 times faster than an 8800Ultra? Watch them make a Ultra 280 8 months out like they did with the 8800..
