neither, a Core 216 will perform a little worse then the gtx 285, but better then the 275 if overclocked. Way more Price/Performance IMO

285. if between the two. Sky has a good point about the 216. It's a great price to performance ratio. But I'm not going to be the one to tell you to turn down either a 275FTW or 285. The 285 is a very expensive card for what it is and I would suggest a 275FTW for 300 rather than a 285 for 400. But if your budget is really not an issue, go for the 295 xD.

i have a gtx260 atm but the 192 core, so you get a gtx260 216 core instead of the 275ftw or 285?

If you manage to buy a Core 216 and OC the heck out of them, they will perform as well as a 280.

Core 216 in SLI is as good as a 295 or 4870x2

Check out these benchies of a Non-Overclocked Core 216

bought a XFX GTX 260 core 216 and it rocks!! crysis warhead on ENTHUSIAST setting with ZERO problems!!
have yet to OC this one but will in a month or so when i have more time...

so for bang for buck, i'd say the core 216 gtx260 is the best bet at the moment.
