Default Re: Convince me to buy a GTX 260

What up, Ash?

I recently made the choice to upgrade and decided on the 4870. Quiet, fast and available at Brick&Mortar. I had a 12% Reward Zone coupon that brought the price down to sub NewEgg levels, but tax took it back to up to $280. I never follow through with rebates, so it was still a comparable price. Plus, I still have two weeks of price match or return time if I find a better deal (with out a rebate, heh).

No regrets, perfect replacement for the 8800GTX.
