Default Re: Official "I just got my GeForce GTX 280 or GTX 260" thread

Just got my EVGA GTX 260 Superclocked last yesterday only played company of heroes with DX10 slight stuttering while playing DX10 overclocked it too 700/1500MHz & 2400MHz memory and it was smooth! My 9800GTX and 8800GTX just couldn't cut it at all, temps are good, idle 47C max load 55C very quite too, fan at 40%. Very happy. I was tosing between a 4870 and this GTX 260, but gone with the GTX due to the extra memory if there was 1GB version of the 4870 i would of got that instead. And got it from the States for 147!! Considering the 4850 costs average of 110 thats a damn good deal. Not sure how EVGA will react with warranty howver which i hope i never have to use.

QX9650 @ 4GHz
4GB PC8000
EVGA GTX 260 896MB @ 700 Core 1500MHz Shaders and 2400MHz memory

Average 92.3fps
Max 209.0fps
Min 19.9fps

Off the top of my head my 9800GTX was somthing like

Average 35fps
Max 67fps
Min 3.2fps

Considering that sites that reviewed the GTX260 seemed to indicate not much of an improvement the GTX260 had over the 9800GTX seems unfounded!! I have not tested any other games at the moment but there is nearly 3x performance increase in avaerage fps and min frame rates are 6x in that game!
