4870 (Faster than GTX 260 but slightly slower than the 280 at $150 less. When i say slightly i mean by a couple FPS is it slower. IMO its not worth the extra $150.)

Right now i would go for a 4870, i really would. It seems to be a great card and it proves itself to me every day. I can't justify spending an extra $150 for an extra couple FPS.
ok thanks.
they have good prices too , about $150 cheaper then what i bought my 8800 for

The HD 4850 is on average 15% faster than the 9800GTX with AA and AF.
