We buy video cards, not GPUs.
HD 4850 X2 is already announced by AMD in their PR to come out in this time-frame. Run two HD 4850 1 GB cards in Crossfire and you'll have an idea, it is expected to outperform GTX 280. HD 4870 X2 is enjoying its $550-worthiness moment meanwhile, people rant about its $550 price tag while forgetting about the $650 tag 8800 Ultra carried in its days. So I personally see the equation somewhat like 8800 GTX and Ultra, with the HD 4850 X2 falling around that $400 mark. Hopefully its entry would slide down the HD 4870 X2's price.
