Default Re: Factory OC'd GTX 260, safe/worth it?

I tried AoC tonight with the same settings I was using on my GTX 280 with an 8800GT (700|2000) @ 1920x minus AA and it could run it @ 34-56FPS in Khopshef. I am returning/refunding the GTX 280 and getting an XFX GTX 260. I ordered the 260 tonight and am shipping out the 280 tomorrow.

The 260 should allow me to start using AA again over the GT and inflate FPS a bit.

For the record the settings were bloom on, shadows all enabled, ground quality distance max, all the other distance and details sliders were max except grass, which I kept at 50%.

Look here for a comparison of a GTX 280 @ 700 on the core and a GTX 260 @ 640 on the core-

If you play 1920x and under you'll never feel the difference.
