Default Re: So I RMA'd my EVGA 8800GTX and they sent back a gtx260

2. I'm only playing one game at the moment (WOW) and my FPS didn't change much at all.

So was recieving the 260 instead of my 8800gtx a score?
Are they close in terms of performance, or is the 260 supposed to run circles arount the 8800?
The 260 is faster, and it seems like a big price difference because the 8800GTX was overpriced and it wasn't until ATI came along with the 4000 series that Nvidia stopped gouging people on their prices which is why the 260 is so much cheaper.
