How about replacing 2 broken toilets and tiling in behind the cooker in my friends hostel. So much impregnated grease on the walls.... At least I can afford a new motherboard now but to pay for my new case, I might have to rewire the whole d*** place knowing him!
And you complaining about mud...

Also I would say HD4870, but the new revision of the GTX260 will add more stream processors I think, just like the G80 to G92 revision. If it has the same results as the G92 revision then it could nearly make the GTX280 redundant, like the 8800GTX was made so by the 8800GTS G92.

For those of you wanting a 260, this is a pretty awesome deal for one:

Newegg.com - EVGA 896-P3-1260-AR GeForce GTX 260 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

280 bucks, and a 40 dollar mail in rebate.
