LOVING IT! Just picked up a a GTX260-216 SC and now I'm running Crysis at VERY HIGH, 8x ansio, 4x FSAA(SS) and it's smooooooooth (1280x800). In fact I am running all my games maxed out now. And with 8x ansio and 4x FSAA(SS). It's amazing! Some at LCD native (1680x1050) and some at 1280x800.
What. :headexplode: :werd: ...however why have AA at a lower-than-native-resolution? :S
Finally got my new PSU so i could power my gtx260, upgraded from a 7600 so its a pretty amazing step up :P

having some issues with it getting pretty hot after a couple hours playing stalker, causing artifacting and fps drops :(

Have you got rivatuner? If not get it and see how fast the fan is spinning.

.

Cause it really cleans up the image. At native I can't run any AA and it's still buzzy.

I just got my EVGA GTX 260. :D

Man this card is sweet looking. Its hard to even call them cards now since they are big heavy metal boxes. I love the heat sink design though. Looks efficient.


Congrats on your new GTX260:D

Heh, for those that said I wouldn't be able to get anything for my 8800GTX, I just sold it for $200 + shipping after being listed for one day. :D

Once I get my mail in rebate back my GTX 260 will have cost me under $15 and I should be getting Far Cry 2 for free. :D

Eh, I'd need an SLI board and probably a new PSU. I'd rather get a Core 2 Quad running at 4+ Ghz. I'm CPU limited in most cases now as it is.

Just got my GTX260 Core 216 yesterday, so far very impressed although I only had limited game time, going to really work it out this weekend.

Hmmm, after having a quick look here and there it seems that the ATI 4870 and the nVidia 260 GTX seem more or less identical...

Can anyone say what the OCing is like for the two?

I don't think I will get either any time soon, but it's just nice to... think that I might get it... soon. :p

For those of you with the BFG card and are getting the far cry 2 bundle, make sure to log into your account and check your myProducts tab. I saw I had to press a button on that page that said "order" to actually order the far cry 2 bundle and didn't do it till today :(. Now it says the bundle is ordered under the myproducts tab. I swear I don't remember that being there before.

Whoo hoo,

My GTX 280 arrived today EVGA SCC. runs very nice and very cool. All games got a HUGE increase from a 7800GTX SLI setup except one "game :p " 3Dmark


Thank you,
Monnie

just got a BFG 280 OC from newegg. Question, when I turn that Fur stability test at stock clocks, it gets to 103'C after about 5 minutes @ 100% fan speed before I get scared and stop the test. However, there are no artifacts and system is perfectly responsive. When I play far cry 2 the highest it goes is 70'C. is this normal?

also, both my case doors are off.

I'm waiting on my BFG 2600 to come in the mail... probably arrive Monday. Very jazzed about it. Whenever I return to PC gaming from a time away, I always need to buy a new graphics card. It's like hitting a ship with a wine bottle.

Yeah... the extra zero was because I am so awesome.

Also, it sucks not wanting to play any games until it comes in on Monday.
