If you can get a good price for the Gts I would go Dual Gtx's.

Well as the GTX is just a rebranded GTS, save your cash and just get another 8800GTS

Get another 512 GTS, exact same thing as a 9800GTX but without tri-sli, and two of them will beat a 4850.

sli is hot too.

the 98gtx will clock higher than the 88gts tho, wether thats worth the extra cost is upto you.

if you wait the gtx260 might be the best option?
