$11.00 isn't much of a price cut.It's most probably just a promotion to sell the card.

can't the GX2 run out of RAM? that happened during a benchmark test with a 4870 512MB and on GRID. Around some of the tracks on high settings it was just unplayable

oh that should be good, ima look at benchmark test 260 vs gx2

http://www.guru3d.com/news/ati-radeo...hmark-results/

not even as good as 4870

http://www.techspot.com/review/109-g...870/page4.html

and 260 beats 4870

i never really heard much about the gx2 when did it come out?

They're running the 512MB version of the 4870 compared to the 1GB and 896MB 280?! That's why it's better. Try comparing it to the 4870x2.
