I can't decide on which card to get... although the nvidia would help me alot. It's no biggie... Crossfire is a option down the road. But of coarse SLI is not.

Price Limit is ~$200, Was about to get a 6870 till they went out of stock :(

I was pondering getting a new GC but I think I will wait to see what AMD drops on us in the short term (6900 series) and what Nvidia does in the dual GPU arena.
Both manufacturers have pretty sweet cards on the table.
