Man this card is sweet looking. Its hard to even call them cards now since they are big heavy metal boxes. I love the heat sink design though. Looks efficient.

Congrats on your new GTX260

Heh, for those that said I wouldn't be able to get anything for my 8800GTX, I just sold it for $200 + shipping after being listed for one day.

Once I get my mail in rebate back my GTX 260 will have cost me under $15 and I should be getting Far Cry 2 for free.

Eh, I'd need an SLI board and probably a new PSU. I'd rather get a Core 2 Quad running at 4+ Ghz. I'm CPU limited in most cases now as it is.

Hmmm, after having a quick look here and there it seems that the ATI 4870 and the nVidia 260 GTX seem more or less identical...

Can anyone say what the OCing is like for the two?

I don't think I will get either any time soon, but it's just nice to... think that I might get it... soon.
