Tell me about it. 4870 X2 destroys the GTX280 easily, except for Crysis, which in all fairness has the drivers optimised for Nvidia..

Eh, to be honest I don't think it would be worth $550. It got beat by the 9800GX2 (a $275 card) in Crysis, lol.

Crysis isn't the only game people play.

No, but at the moment it is the most demanding one, and a great benchmark for games...

Sure its a benchmark, but it's not the only benchmark nor the greatest benchmark.

You're saying because a cheaper card beats it in one game, that it's not worth it?
