Default Re: Should I go from a gtx 260 to a 285?

Maybe I'm crazy but I am, currently have an eVGA GTX 260 (original version) and ordered an XFX GTX 285 for $350 shipped from Newegg, will be here tomorrow w00t! Really the only reason I ended up doing it was I was one of the peeps that ordered that GTX 280 for $200 from and none of us ending up getting it, and I was so excited when I had found that and then when I realized they weren't going to follow through with the deal I didn't want my excitement to end so figured I'd go for the 285 lol. However I should get $200 out of my old card so it'll just be a $150 upgrade after 6 months of ownership, not bad imo.
