Ok ok I ditched the sound card for now. We'll see how I like it but I can always get that later.
But I was dreaming up ways to spend that $90 I'm saving now and ran across the GTX 280s.
If I were to get one like this EVGA Geforce GTX 280 1GB,
what would be a good motherboard that's high quality but doesn't have a bunch of extra stuff (like SLI capability, I don't plan on ever running two cards)? Preferrably around $90-120. Also, do you think the GTX 280 will show me a performance increase over the 4870 1GB to merit the ~$120 more that it costs?
Thanks in advance! And let me know if there are better GTX 280 options, but I do like EVGA quite a bit so give me a good reason!
