HOT! Figuratively and literally. :)

While im impressed that its a single card beating a GX2, its requiring a superclocked GTX 280. According to EVGA a SSC 280 runs about 700 bucks.
 
I might consider it though. That or swoop up a second GX2 because their prices will probably drop haha.
 
Oh and for the record, here is a link to EVGAs site for their prices of these new video cards.

Might I add though, what the hell are they doing in Crysis where a GX2 is getting 33FPS average on high at 1900x1200 2AA....Looking at the ground? Because mine doesnt get anywhere NEAR that.
 
I cant even get 30FPS peak on even 1200x1024

Maybe, its a non overclocked E8500 right now. I did test OC it earlier just to check temps, but i still want to wait a bit before I lock in a permi OC...just wanted to stick my foot in the water first.
 
Still id say if you have a 98GX2, its definally not worth it to upgrade. In fact, Im almost convinced now, though ill wait a week after release to see just how good these cards really are.
 
Im probably gonna keep my GX2 and buy a second one. The only disadvantage id see over a GTX 280 is that overall id be faster with Tri Sli, But thats something i couldnt do with my power supply anyways, and it will probably be faster in SLI as well or at least on par to quad sli GX2, mainly due to the quad SLI drivers sucking butt.
But lets see...the GX2 is currently 449 bucks (for an EVGA standard one). The SUPERCLOCKED 280 is around 700 bucks and only gives about a 15% increase....Which would you choose? lol. Its pretty obvious which is the better buy...especially considering the price will probably drop even more after these cards are truely out.
 
 
 
Id also like to add that Id wish theyd stop comparing the GTX 280 to the 9800GTX. While indeed it is a single card vs single card. I think the better comparison is with a 9800GX2 for two reasons. 1) Price range is closer and 2) The 98GTX is NOT the highest end card, the 98GX2 is. The GTX 280 is ment to replace the GX2 for the top spot, not the 98GTX.
 
Comparing it to a 98GTX just distorts the facts and makes the card look far superior then it really is.

I would say no. I would wait for GT200 die-shrink that's rumored to come out in Q4 2008.
