Default Re: What's the difference between the GTX 260 and the GTX 285?

you are big time CPU limited ,you need a i7 920 or a i5 750 to show there real power.You would have to get a new CPU and motherboard and memory to see the difference.You would have to spend around $500 to see that GTX 285 full potential ,unless you can find some one selling some i5 or i7 and the rest at a good price.Even if you could find a used E8400 or a E7400 or even a E6600 and overclock them and a SLI 775 motherboard and some DDR2 1066 memory you would see a difference.
