single card is the GTX280.

If you have a crossfire or SLI board, then it depends on what you want to do with it.

GTX 260 or HD 4870?

HD 4870 FTW. It costs less, and performs (on average) better from the reviews I've seen.

Well the 4870 is an awesome performer from the benchies I have seen. The price is great to.

Due to its price if you ever wanted to go CF its nice and easy as it would be cheapish to pick up a cf setup.
