Default Re: Can't afford GTX280, but...

PLUS, you get free Far Cry 2 and 3DMark Vantage.

I plan on selling my 8800GTX on ebay to make most of the money back, so I'll basically be spending $15 for a video card and getting a free $50 game that I want.

On top of that, with a well ventilated case a 260 should overclock to be about as fast as a stock 280.

Its not the HUGE upgrade I wanted but its a hell of a deal.
lol how much do u think someone is going to pay these days for an 8800 gtx? youll be lucky to get 100$ for it.
