Re: xfx gtx 260 black vs 8800gtx sli
I had SLI 9800GTX+'s and the GTX260 Core 216 is deffinitely a better performer. My 3dMark06 score dropped when going from SLI to a single card setup, but that's just numbers. It is more than equal to my previous setup with the 9800's. I don't even see the need to get a second GTX260... and I have had SLI since my first computer build(SLI - 8800GTS 320mb, 8800GT 512mb, 9800GTX+).
The G200 series is the frist card since the 8800GTX that deserves to wear the GTX badge, there should have never been a 9-series "GTX".
The 8800GTX held it's ground for so long, now there is finally a card worth upgrading to.
