Default Re: Should I get a GTX 260 216??

I thought the HD 4870's were pretty good cards,but it you got the 512mb versions then the vram could be holding you back.I would get either a EVGA GTX 260 or a BFG GTX 260 216 shader.I bought BFG this time around and have had real good luck with them.The first BFG 280 OCX I bought came clocked at 666/1458/2400 and it still overclocks great.the secound BFG GTX 280 I bought was just a plain GTX 280 that came clock at 602/1295/2214,but had no trouble overclocking it to 666/1458/2592,plus it come with a 100 day upgrade policy and you can upgrade to faster GTX 280's which evga does'nt let you do that.It comes with a game package FarCry2 ,3DMark vantage and a BFG super bright flashlite and a $30 rebate.The better deal is the BFG GTX 280 OCE that come s clocked at 615/ 1350/2214 ,you get the same game package ,but you get a $50 rebate makeing the card just cost $360.You get the same game package with the GTX 260 216 shaders with Evga cards except the flashlite,but the BFG offers a 100 day upgrade and is can't go wrong with either brand.They both offer good customer support.
