I'm not going to flame, but the 4870's are way better value. You can get two of them for the price of a single GTX 280
GTX 280's are a bit faster (~10 maybe 15% with current drivers), but nowhere near faster (%) than the price difference (%).

You could even get a single 4870 now, and crossfire it with a 4870 X2 when they come out. You'd get higher performance than two GTX 280's and pay less money.

or if you are an overclocker you can make the 4850 outperform even an overclocked GTX 280 : )
