Is the 4870 x2 equal to the 280i?

If they are why does the 280i cost just as much as a 4870 x2? Why would you spend the same amount for one as you do for two?

  1. i would say the 280 is a solid step behind the x2. i dont know where your looking at prices though. i can get a 280 for 100-150 cheaper.

  8. Instead of asking people here to do all your thinking for you, try spending a little time researching, read the reviews, apply some critical judgement and make up your own mind after you have educated yourself.
