I just got a 260 for pretty much the same reason.

Still a darn good card that runs cool and quiet. Could almost get a 2nd which would work out costing almost the same as a single GTX 280.

If you really want 280 performance then an overclocked 216sp GTX 260 is supposed to get fairly close.

Thanks. :)

I'm tempted by a 4870X2 but I don't want to have to rely on individual profiles being written for games before I can take full advantage of both GPUs.

Maybe I should stop being greedy and just get an OC or OC2. :D

Why not get your 280 from another brand?, stock cards easily overclock to the same speeds as the pre overclocked ones

Not just you, I've been shopping around and they are a bit thin on the ground.

Might seem like an odd forum for me to visit but I don't like overclocking components. :)
