Why the hell are those results posted with ridiculously high res? Show the results for the resolution that most of us play at (1680x1050) or as close as you can. I bet those results would look a LOT different.
Yeah you're right, so let's all go get the GX2. It takes 2 4870's to match a GX2 (sometimes), and a GX2 is only $429. 2 4870's is $600, plus you need a crossfire mobo. With a GX2 you can use any mobo because it is single-slot.
All this talk about price/performance only goes so far. There are plenty of people that want the best performance they can get, regardless of price. I could have stuck with my 9600 GT which was a little beast for being only $140, but I have had a GX2 before and loved how it tore through every game I own without breaking a sweat.
I think you are all silly to buy the GTX280. The price difference vs the performance is way out of wack. I don't care what company you root for, that is just dumb.
edit: And also, it seems like the performance is WAY too game dependant. I am going to wait for a driver update and some more benches to see where these all end up.
