I cannot believe you are fed up of a HD 4870.. I'm not even grown fed up of my HD 3850

Folding wont do that....you would have to be running more cards than me.

Not to mention that the GPU client gives you the best ppd per watt.

i was running 6 cores, a 4870 and an 8800gts full load 24/7 for almost 30 days last month. i think that'd do it? my 4870 uses almost as much power (or right at it) full load as your SLI 8800GTs. i dunno...maybe i ran the heater more than usual lol who knows...
but anyways...rican what do you think of my dilemma? whats your vote?

My 4830 crossfire set up is so SEXY I just can't part with them any time soon.

Actually I m a liar, as soon as I get enough for dual 5850's the 4830's go out the window.

I can't wait for 5*** series VS. GTX300 series! That's gonna be more epic than this generation, and we might max out Crapsis. xO

Nagasama, you can get a 65nm, or 55nm, both will OC to a GTX280 level, but if you can get a GTX280 for ~$300, it's a great deal. ;DD I'd wait for prettier 55nm, because they're ugly...
