i don't think any single card solution can do, especially when you oc the 4890.

You learned a valuable lesson: nothing ever lives up to the hype.

Waiting for a graphics card is like waiting with having sex until marriage. Afterwards you'll realize: I could have been doing this for six months if werent so stupid.

When all is said and done, I'll end up paying $130 for my 4890.

the gtx 275's are better than the gtx 280, atleast in benchmarks, but just ever so slightly.

but for $200 the best nvidia card you could get is a gtx 280.

the gtx 280 and the hd4890 (each non OCed) are almost on par.

Whether or not a 275 is a 'better' card or not is definitely debatable, due to various differences betwixt them, but if clocked to the same speeds, a GTX280 is a faster card than a 275.

In fact, barring some kind of a defect, it would be physically impossible for a gtx275 to beat a GTX280 at the same clocks.
