For those who own 22" monitors and want to play at 1680x1050 the standard resolution of the 22" monitor.

Using Anantech's benchmarks.

GTX280 109.2 $619.99
GTX260 93.1 $324.99 (Froogle)

Oblivion 4xAA & 16X AF
GTX280 57.1 $619.99
GTX260 49 $324.99 (Froogle)
4870 48.5 $299.95
4850 40.8 $199.99 ($169.99 with Rebate)

The Radeon 4870 wins 4 out of 7 at 1680x1050 and is half the cost of the GTX280.

I personally still would go with the Radeon 4850 just because I dont see any game up here that requires anything higher other than crysis to which I will probably wait until my next video card after this to play crysis. Its just one game.

I would also like to see Assassin's Creed with the DX10.1 patch applied because once NVIDIA has DX10.1 this will tell us what these games will do when the patch is finally allowed by NVIDIA.

Yes Much better thanks.

I do wish they would even seperate out the SLI/XF benchmarks. I no longer have any interest in doing a dual card config unless both chips are on the same card so I still have to weed through the benchmarks. Not a big deal but I suspect more people are running a single card not duals.
