Default Re: 260 GTX good enough?

Bioshock, Oblivion, UT3, ect will all do pretty well with that card. Its impossible to say how long it'll last. I know Crysis @ Very High with 4xAA is way out of reach of those settings. From the Nvidia perspective I tend to look at the 260 as the super card for 1680x1050. And the midrange card for 1920x1200 +. SLI them and things change dramatically.

But like I said. Your results will vary from game to game. For 90% of everything out there. A single GTX 260 is more than adequate for that resolution with your desired settings. Other games you may have to make some compromises. If your less into compromises a GTX 280 might be better suited for you.

This opinion is formed from owning 3 GTX 260 cards, and 2 GTX 280 cards currently.
