The GTX 280 is faster. It's even beaten by a GTX 260 in some games and resolutions.

OK, so which one is the best?

Okay. I'll go for the MSI 275, but that is the most i will pay, as I am already way over budget.

That's a great card. I have never really suggested the HD 4850 X2 as it was always a little overpriced, but that's a great deal.

The X2 is faster in every test except Warhead where it is only behind by two FPS.

but look at the settings though worship. In Warhead On the 4850 x2 2gb and 1gb the settings are on gamer and mainstream. On the 275 they are on enthusiast and gamer. so I think its a little more than 2 FPS off. On some of the other games they have Higher AA than the other cards and different settings on GTA4 as well. If the settings were all the same I wonder how close it is. I don't understand why they don't use the same EVERYTHING when doing these comparisons. Same system and ALL settings should be Identical IMO.

Oh wait on the apples to apples section on the last page they have the GTX 275 pulling ahead in every game except fallout 3 and they didnt even list the GTX 275 in Farcry 2.

Whoops, I certainly won't be quoting that site again Please excuse me for assuming they would be running the same settings for all the cards tested.

Here's another review which does show the HD 4850 X2 with an advantage over the 280.

It's $220, there's no way you're getting a better card for the price.

OK. is there a better price for it anywhere?

Should I buy the 2gb or the 1gb? I have read several reviews that said it is almost no better if you get the 2gb. I relly am on a budget, so I think the 1gb now.
