post #31 of 35
Thread Starter 
Ok for the time being i'm using the 280gtx, the 8800gts and one other card should i keep the 8800gtx or sell that and 1 4870 or both 4870? on ebay the 8800gtx seems to go for slightly more than a 4870 which seems silly and makes me wanna sell it!

Almost off topic, but I'd be willing to trade you my 8800GTX and $40 for 1 of your 4870. PM me if you're interested.

This actually gets lower frame rates than the 2 4870's...and consumes more power...in the next few months i will be getting 1 or 2 5870's but i wan't to end up with 5870, 8800gts and 280gtx
So will be selling my 8800GTX and my 2 4870's i guess but for now which do i keep?
