I am deciding if i should sell my 4870 x2 and buy a 780i and 2 gtx 260s or 280s for my yearly computer change or buy another 4870 x2. I need some suggestions. I am mainly going for stock performance and looks.
I personally wouldn't upgrade your gfx card. Either get another 150gb raptor and run em in Raid 0, or get another 24" LCD or upgrade your cpu and mobo to i7. 1 4870x2 is enough, a 2nd is a waste of money in my opinion.
If you are going to switch cards then go for the 280/285 SLI setup. 260's in SLI isn't going to be much different than your 4870X2. I'd hold off on doing any of that though since the 4870X2 is already a beast of a card and apply your money elsewhere.
