Default GTX 260 (192sp)

If you want one of these the prices are really nice right now and nVidia won't be making any more.

215usd
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127361

220usd
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130370

I'd pay the extra 5usd and get the Evga for the lifetime warranty, StepUp, and official support of end user overclocking and HSF replacement. These card rock manually overclocked to 660-700.

Wish I didn't have to have a new PSU first or I'd already have that eVGA card!

How well does the 216SP model compare to the 192SP model?

The 13% increase in SP's gives a real world gain of about 7%, give or take depending on the application. Keep in mind that 7% scales with the clock speed, so a good overlock really makes them shine. My overclocked 216 model is a bit faster than a GTX 280. From what I have seen the cores will do 700+ quite easily, though it's harder to get memory bandwidth on par with a 280, as you need the memory running at 2500Mhz for that. I went for the superclocked model as they seem to be binned higher.

Here's one review I found; http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...on-review.html

I think there's like a $30 difference over at Newegg between the 192 and 216. If one could stretch it, I'd go for the 216, but that's now always possible. I mean, hell, the 192 sure beats the hell out of my 9800GTX.

I always see reviewers questioning why they used the "216" moniker rather than a new name like GTX 265, but I'm willing to bet it's so they did not have to print new boxes, as all they do is slap on a "Core 216" sticker.

They should have called it the gtx 270 ideally

That a great price .If you need a power supply that will run two of them then Thermaltake makes a 450watt vga power supply that fits in one DVD drive bay and it just cost $69.It puts out 37.5 amps.The reason I know it will work just fine is because I am running two BFG GTX 280 OCX clocked at 665/1458/2400 in SLI and it works perfect.

Its really not as much as some might make it out to be. I did a mixed SLI comparison with the 192 and 216 cards. And the performance was a little bit better. These days people can make 10% seem like 100 FPS

People can say what they will about the 216's not being "much" better than the 192's. All I can say is from my experience w/ my EVGA card it rocks. The OC I can reach is simply amazing. I've settled for a "modest" OC (see sig), and it runs everything maxed out.

NOTE: I've run Crysis w/ custom cfg (very high w/o the performance hit) @ 1680x1050 on a 22" monitor and get a steady 28 fps on average. That's with the natural mod installed as well......simply amazing!

Love my 216!

So you had zero issues with a vanilla GTX 260 being in SLi with one using 126SP? No stutter or odd issues?
