Ebuyer were selling a gtx 260 for 135, but it didn't say whether it was the 192 core version or 216, probably 192, so I went with the Novatech card instead.

For GRAW 2 I maxed everything out at 1280x1024 with AA smoothing off, AFx16, Physx on Extreme and was getting between 79-32. Overclocked my CPU to 2.67mhz and now it no longer stutters in fire fights. My CPU must be bottle necking the card. Still I thought with a GTX260 the FPS would be higher. It now plays smooth, well at least on the first level, so I'm happy.
Good stuff from Novatech, sort of forgot that site even. OCUK had a 216 GTX for about 160 - delivery though.
