And by the way, does your board support SLI or Crossfire? Or neither?
Yha, that i know, and the main service is still down south.

Also why you have to pay both gst and pst.

I also find ncix has better deals. I've scored an 8600gts for 39.99 and my 260 for 249.99.

the choice would be more of a matter of personal preference on your part,

me, I'd get the GTX

the 4870 1 GB is still a beautiful performer though
