What's the difference between the GTX 260 and the GTX 285?
 
What's the difference between the GTX 260 and the GTX 285? I have both now and don't really much. In benchmarking maybe up to 3 frames.

An Opteron 185 just isn't fast enough to let either card stretch its legs.

yea, youre cpu limited

my old Q6600 @ 3.6Ghz and 260 192SP clocked to 756/512/1200 gets around 17,500 in 06

my i7 920 and gtx 285 get that score at stock

I got a very good deal on the 285 so I bought it. I already knew that my cpu was limited. But still plays game smooth. I like the game Mirror's Edge. When playing with the GTX 260 installed and PhysX turned on in the game in some spots I only got 3 frames. Now with the GTX 285 installed and all settings set to the highest and PhysX turned in the game in those same spot I get 50 frames. What a big difference there. And mind you I play at 1920 X 1200. Even in GTA IV I get 30 frames and and settings set very high. Hopefully I can get a quad core and new board and ram. But don't know not rich.

you are big time CPU limited ,you need a i7 920 or a i5 750 to show there real power.You would have to get a new CPU and motherboard and memory to see the difference.You would have to spend around $500 to see that GTX 285 full potential ,unless you can find some one selling some i5 or i7 and the rest at a good price.Even if you could find a used E8400 or a E7400 or even a E6600 and overclock them and a SLI 775 motherboard and some DDR2 1066 memory you would see a difference.

Yes upgrade your CPU and motherboard and some fast ram.

I am amazed. First off thank you all. But I never ask about the cpu, motherboard or upgrading. What I asked was simple. And none of you really answered.

So I assume your all white with black hair and short.:D

I think the only difference is the memory width, number of shader cores and MHz. Not worth the extra money, IMO. Maybe I'm wrong, so someone correct me if I am, but that's the only thing that's ever been mentioned in reviews and spec sheets.
