Just got my EVGA 55 nm GeForce GTX 260 Core 216. Try saying that 10 times really fast

Did a step up from a 9600GSO that was $99 on the NewEgg invoice but only $30 out of pocket (after Live cashback, coupons, and rebates); ending up paying $169.99 (Step Up) + $30 for the 9600GSO, only $200, not bad. Driver recommendations, anyone?

I RMA'd my GTX 260 core 216 and EVGA upgrade me to GTX 260 core 216 SSC 55nm! Which is cool but now I want to go SLI and can't find it any where. Amazon has it as pre-order and newegg doesn't have it either. Anyone?

I got the last remaining stock of the 65nm, Core 216 EVGA Superclocked Edition.
Finally determined my stable overclock speeds: 737/1534/2506
The problem is, I like it so much, I'm hesitant to step-up with EVGA.
Oh well, I have another 60 days to decide.

Got my two gainward Golden Sample 260GTX SP216s today. Pretty good 300AUD a pop. Installed and running without a problem. Tight squeeze with 2nd card and X-Fi. May end up pulling the X-Fi if it runs two hot.

Installing patching Crysis now.

Little step up.

Crysis runs perfectly. Stock, no special configs. 1680x1050 4AA. So good. Best 3sum ever!
