Get an Evga GTX 260 Core 216. Almost as good as the 280, for alot cheaper. Since you have an Nvidia chipset, might as well go with Nvidia cards.

I definitely have to continue the motion for the GTX 260 core 216.

You have a step up? Go for the 280's if you can afford to

The GTX260 or the HD4870x2 are the best buys dependant on your budget.
post #16 of 39
Honestly, I'm a Nvidia fan boy, but I'd say go ATI, they look more promising right now.

4870x2 OR 4850x2, hmm... for performance with no budget concern 4870x2, for performance with budget concern 4850x2

Edit: but since you have a Nvidia chipset, I'd have to say GTX280 for no budget concern, GTX260 216 for budget concern.

GTX260 with 216sp is my vote. Getting very solid performance with mine, it replaced the 4870 which was having driver problems and often crashed games.

Another vote for the GTX 260 Core 216. And yes it will fit your case as long as you don't have any hard drives in it's path.
