4870X2/ GTX 260 TRi SLi/ GTX 280 SLi ! Apparently these are the choices that I think I have.. I cant go CrossFire because I'll be buying a new board then , if I'm willing to do that , then why not go GTX 280 TRi SLi instead...same cost.. I really want TRi 280's but I'm afraid that'll just be a big waste of money...im saying because I've never pictured spending so much on cards that'll cost half it's price in 6months.. But I still want to...it's tempting but I want to restrict my self to something more sane/humane (price wise , I mean) So the 4870X2 , all my upgrade paths end with buying just one of these..even tho I really really want to get it.. Extremely tempting and probably tention free...since it's one really powerful card..that'll probably fill out my SLi measuring performance hunger.. It's only 20% more expensive then the GTX 280 here..very tempting. Plus I can always hand it over to my brother if something new pops.. 1 Long lasting product I guess.. GTX 280 SLi , probably consistant , what if StarCraft ends up using only one GPU , atleast it's bare minimum wont be as bad as that of a TRi 260's only running on 1 GPU.. I'm guessing probably better for Stratigy games compaired the a TRi setup.. Then again I'm not sure.. Since every one talks about it , it's one of the safest choices.. But dont know if it really does better then the X2 , every review tells a different story.. TRi 260 SLi , it's a mix between the idea of getting everything...I guess.. 3 Cards is a fantasy , an urge fullfillment , Higher Performance Over the 4870X2 & possibly better performance compaired to a GTX 280SLI set.. But obviously less then a GTX 280 TRi set.. Could perform like a X2 CrossFire set.. Biggest benifit price...for 3 cards.. Those 3 cards can always come in handy in all my other rigs @ home..
