Durr, Tri-Sli GTX 280's beat 2 4870x2

Also, for the budget, I'd get something like 1066 or 1200 ram instead of just 800.

(3) 280GTX would break the bank around $1200-$1400 right there. (2) 4870x2s is a better bang for the buck all-around $1000-$1200. And even then, some benchmarks show that a single 4870x2 beats a 280GTX. The only benchmark I saw that the 280GTX did better in is Crysis and GRAW2. The 4870x2 has a higher 3dmark score than the 280GTX (Source:Guru3d). If you had to pick between a high end CPU or high end GPU, the choice would be the CPU. I actually think DDR2 800 is fine. DDR2 1066 is great, but DDR2 800 is pretty damn cheap

Although I personally would never use the full 1066 or 800 mhz because I'm a fan of the 1:1 ratio concept because it keeps my system running cool.
