im pretty comfy with the 4870x2. The new drivers are good. No pointless driver failures for no reason anymore. Can max all games Including Crysis at 1920x1200.

Doesn't really matter though. The lines between ati and nvidia have been blurred again. ATM i'd still go 4870x2 > all, but the gtx 260-216 are good cards, as well as the 4870.
