it's either going to be an xfx 9800GTX black edition or GTX 260 FTW edition, my purchase, the 4870 looks good too but im not a big ATi fan because of the past ATi cards I've had, even tho the 4870 is a monster, still unsure
basically I think of it this way
EVGA 260 GTX FTW Edition > Sapphire ATi radeon 4870 > 9800GTX xfx black edition
but, the 4870's value is soo good, and it beats the regular gtx 260 easily, and I can OC the 4870 right? I like the sapphire brand too its #1 brand for it now, am I wrong? picking between those 3 basically now..
