Around GTX 280 performance, but is somewhat overpriced on Newegg right now

The 4850 X2 is out?! O_O

For 430 bucks, it seems very well worth it, keeping up with the 500 dollar counterpart, the GTX 280. According to that review the only problems were that it was a bit loud, and that there's driver issues. Both of these can potentially be fixed in a few weeks. And if the price is supposed to be even lower, then I think that card will be an amazing value.

Rofl, look what I caused, an awesome breakthrough for ATi, again! Can the 4850 be CF with a 4850 X2, with only a 750TX?

GTX 280 aren't at $500. They are around $360-$400.
