Default Re: Upgrade worthwhile?

But you can overclock a plain BFG GTX 280 to 665/1512/2400 plus it will do over 700on the core if I back down the shaders to 1458 and the memory will do 2592.and it will run game a lot higher in some games and not so much on others.If you have a board that has SLI then I would go with two GTX 260's in SLI.So Yes upgradeing from a 8800GTX to a GTX 280 or GTX 260 is very worth while.
