If i were you i would skip the 4800 series and the 200 series and wait until the next thing because the 8800 is still a great card but if you really want a new one i would go with the SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 4870 1GB, because it has more memory and a great hsf

The 4870 is close to GTX 280

it actually is true. i don't know what you are laughing about.

if you know for a fact you aren't going to get a second card in the future or you use linux or bench or fold, get a GTX 260 core 216, but make sure it is a 55nm one.

if you know you want a second card, or don't really care about benches, or like your AA, get a 4870 1gb and another later
