    I was wondering whether to upgrade my Zotac Gtx 280 to one of the Asus 5850's ocuk just got in stock.

    What i want to know: Is it worth it?

    With the 5850 i'd get dx11 as well as a nice upgrade in performance (Although i cant knock my 280 at the moment)

    - Side Note- Anyone know what i could get for my old card if i do upgrade?

    Thanks Chaps.

    You might as well wait and see what fermi brings. If you want to compare, a 5850 overclocked is roughly on par with a gtx 295 without the multi gpu issues.
