Eh man! Don't diss the Wii! lol, it has the most franchise exclusive games coming out.
[besides outside FF series and Tales of VP for PS3, Fable and Halo for XBOX, all good games are releasing for PC as well - no point in getting those ]

I'll get 285 now, and then SLI it this december - xmasgift or something lol.

Ya I am just gonna get a good monitor with a good sound card + tuner, and then get speakers.

so I won't have to waste 200 more bucks for sound card/tuner.


the 295 is 230 more bucks than 285, not justified as I am not the extreme gamer lol
Just looking to play decent demanding games at a decent fps with clear, flowing graphics (at 1920x1200)
and looking at how Crysis 2 lowered it's graphic expectations so that the game can go more mainstream, I don't see a point in going 295.
I'll settle for SLI - should get me through 2 years without the games overmatching their performance lol.
