kaptkarl - Well Crysis looks amazing & definitely plays a lot better, but I've not seen any great improvement when playing Graw 2. Graw 1 is much better though as is Lost Planet Colonies. With my 8800gts I was barely geting 31fps, but with the GTX260, the fps has more than doubled to 79fps with everything maxed out.

Using Evga precision, I have so far oc my card to 672/1460/2202. I could probably go higher, but that's sufficient for the time being. I paid 160 + free p&p for mine and it came with Far Cry 2 and Mirror's edge, so you're definitely right about it being an excellent card for the price.
Holy **** - where did you get the cards from? I got that one from and it came with FC2, but no ME. Cost about 180 and was about 20 cheaper than anywhere else at that time - about a week later 260GTXs were available for 160. lol
I want a rig that can play Crysis the way I can play Far Cry now.
