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

Sold my 2x 88GTS 640's for 140 and bought the xpertvision GTX260 for 180. Bye bye SLI issues!!

I am very impressed with this card. Medal of Airborne for instance is now playable and I've nearly finished it today. In SLI it was like running through mud that I just gave up.

IN 3DMark it is on a par with the GTS's but in all games it is better. I only game at 1680x1050 and with this card I can crank up the AA & AF and have smooth gameplay. I did consider the GTX280 but the heat issue put me off and the 4870X2 but it's not out yet.

I just thought the GTX260 was a "bargain" only costing me 40.

Asus P5N32-E-SLI mobo, Intel Core 2 Quad 6600 at 2.7, Radeon HD5850 1GB, HP 22" LCD @ 1680x1050, 4Gb AData 800 mhtz ram, 1TB Samsung Spinpoint F1 & 250gb Seagate H/D, 2x DVD Burners, X-FI Xtreme Gamer, Thermaltake ToughPower 700w PSU
