I also got my GTX 260 a few days ago, the thing is a beast, had to move a few hard drives to fit it in. Surprisingly it runs around the same temps as my 8800GTS.

I'm not sure how much improvement there is yet but I can pretty much max all my games with 16xXQ and 16xAF, excluding crysis of course which still runs below what i'd expect.

hehe, well I play at 1680x1050 (no AA) since thats my native resolution. So I was hoping I could max it out with frames not going below the 30 mark, but unfortunately I get around 22ish sometimes.

Although, I was testing using Crysis Wars, but I figure Wars is less intensive cuz the settings are different where Best Graphics mode is actually just high in crysis instead of very high.

I see. It sound about right, though I recall playing Crysis at 1680x1050 on E8400 at ~4Ghz, 4GB of RAM and a 260GTX at about stock - and that felt similar to palying Crysis at 1280x1024 with E6600 @~ 3Ghz, 2GB of RAM and an 8800GTX. Though it's been a while since I palyed on theother system (E6600,2GB RAM and 8800GTX is mine).

Also I'm not sure if the settings were the same...

Compared to the 8800GT it might be. Your mum said that? Really?

She must have had a 6600GT beforehand or something...
