Wanna buy mine? Then you can SLI them.

Keep the suggestions coming guys and thanks. Looks like I'm going to be looking towards the GTS 250.

Spend the extra $10 for a GTX 260 (216) its a huge upgrade over the other cards you were considering.

If you really won't spend the extra cash then the upcoming (in less than a week) 4770 is the only card you should be considering.

Wow, I just read that article on Guru3D, that thing looks pretty sick. It's 40nm, so it'll run pretty cool and it's going to be less than $100.

Nice man, I think I might wait.

Only 80w as well, your PSU would be able to manage two of them without breaking a sweat. Its a really nice looking card, really nails the performance, price and power usage balance.

With a P5Q-E you could Crossfire HD4770's and it wouldn't use much power at all.
