Yeah, it's good to see that dual GPU solutions are actually performing the way they should be. Way too horrible back then. Once again, CF is proven superior.

And the 4870 too should get better with future drivers.

He was commenting on GTX280 vs 4870 I think, also that price is only good if you deal with the MIR, a good deal, but adds the work of getting it. It is still ~$300 vs ~$300 on the 260 vs 4870.

Its worth the hassle for $80 though if you went that way, but yes $300 vs $300 is a fair call.

Thanks
