Hi

I've build my new rig and I'm pretty much undecided to which GFX I should buy. I was was thinking about either two GTX260 in SLI or a single HD4870X2. I know that both the setups are VERY dependant on the drivers.

 

So what do you counsel?!

My rig:

 

Asus Striker II Formula

 

E8400 @ 3.9GHz

 

WD 150GB

 

PSU: ThermalTake Toughpower 750W

Sorry. Missed your post yesterday somehow. The 4870x2 seems to beat out the 260 sli. Here are some benches. If you have the $100 extra buck that it will cost you I would go with that.

the ATI card is by far the better and you have the spare power to run it as well....
