Default Re: GTX 260. Great upgrade for 8800GTX users imo.

Also looking at firingsquads numbers, an overclocked GTX 260 is almost as fast as a stock GTX 280. For $250 less its a bargain.
Yeah GTX 260 seem really worth to buy, I will wait until next week for more reviews and the cards in stock for around 300, it would cost me about 150 if I will sell my Geforce 8800GTX on ebay for up to 150.

Look like GTX 260 and 280 have massive headroom to overclock, Tesla C1060 use same core as GTX 280 with 240 streaming processors clocked at 1.3GHz core.
