No it's not. When I bought a brick and mortar evga 260(returned after having two make loud vibration noises) my innitial reaction was that I was pretty disapointed with the small performance over my overclocked 8800gts g92 with the 260 still at stock speeds. It starts to shine though if you OC but unfortunally with BFG's warranty OC'ing voids it(how would they know tho?). I'm OC my BFG regardless and I have mine at a comfy 666core/1458shader/1150memory. I can go higher but I don't want to stress it too much.
Also make sure yo uhave the cpu power behind it. If that q6600 isn't at 3.2+ crank it up. Where I think(and im no techy) it shines is at 19x12 with aa and af cranked. That's when it starts to pull away. Plus i think if you watch you'll be getting better average fps with less dips.
My justifing this cards is I sold my 8800 for $120 and got this one for $200 with far cry 2. So a cheap upgrade with a decrnt performance boost.
