It only took 6 weeks to lose almost half its price, unbelievable. This should be a lesson to everyone who bought it on the first day... never do it again.

Waiting to buy PC parts when they get cheaper is retarded. You know they're going to be cheaper, and obsolete very soon. Who cares, buy what you can afford when you're ready to buy.

Great price on these though. I'm 1/2 tempted to jump on this, but I prefer EVGA.

Man 2 of those in SLI would get you some pretty good fps, even in crysis...

Actually I can't find any benches on GTX 260 SLI, anyone recall a site that has it...

Any other time I would have agreed with you, but not this time with nvidia's cards dropping almost 50% in a month.

Yeah, because this happens every single time!

NOT.

Don't you love people who use the laser-like precision of hindsight like they're some kind of psychic?

I guess there was no way of knowing this would happen early on since we didn't have any 4870 or 4850 performance numbers before the GTX series was released.

Still, I can't imagine spending $650 on a 280 with the 4870 right around the corner, and I definitely wouldn't have spent the money after seeing how competitive it was.
