Ive had an X1900XTX for 2 years now, experiencing severe graphics corruption and failures. So I just bought the EVGA 896-P3-1260-AR GeForce GTX 260 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 from newegg. But I started looking around more, and theres a GX2 for about the same price. What should I get?

i think 4870 is a better deal since its
-cheaper
-performs better on average (sumtimes even beating 280)
-takes the heat produced and lets it out through the vents outside the case
-better performance when u enable AA and AF

+1 for the 4870, IMO it will have more longevity.

^^^^^harsh.
Just enjoy the GTX260, it`s a fine card and, unlike the `two on a stick` solutions, will have no problems with SLI/CF scaling.

Yeah, it comes tomorrow, i was just making sure im not regretting anything. It seems the GX2 performs better by a small margin according to those links goonting gave me. Thanks! Ill stick with my financially friendly 260 = ] lol
