im amazed about crysis

in warhead i have been playing all settings at enthusiast mode at the most my monitor can do - 1680x1050

and i thought the game looked real on my 8800GT OC2 before the 280

Sounds like an awesome card guys. For me the last couple of levels in Crysis really knocked my 8800GTX out of the ring. How did the 260 handle it.

Well I just dumped two POS 4870s (512MB) in Crossfire for a silky smooth XFX GTX 260 (216) Black Edition!

Should be arriving tomorrow in the post!

I will never go back to ATI again...EVER The drivers are scandalous and Catalyst 8.11 broke everything as you will see by all the problems ATI users are reporting. I have been using ATI since the 3870X2 and have had nothing but problems. ATI only introduce profiles for games 3 months after they have come out....

Sorry to say this but ATI are just like AMD CPU's.. an exercise in cutting corners and mediocrity.

Really for a simple life its Intel and Nvidia all the way... I hope Nvidia come back and take the performance and bang for buck crown from ATI.... Cos they certainly have their drivers locked down compared to cheapo AMD who can't afford a decent driver team...

My EVGA GTX 260 216 arrived today, I concur with the Crysis (Warhead) verdict: It is excellent. It is very smooth at high/very high, 2xAA and 16x10.

Also I had a quick crack at OC'ing it: I got 700/1509/2400 which i'm pretty pleased with, max temps are about 75'C and no artifacts in Crysis or Far Cry 2.

I could easily go further but didn't want to increase the fan above auto to keep the temps down (at 60% it is about as loud as 100% on my old 320).

I got my third GTX 260 the other day. I ordered two vanilla EVGA GTX 260s off of Newegg and got two Core 216 cards instead. They're now all jacked into an EVGA X58 mobo. My old card is 192SP. Early results for my new build are below-

Tri-SLi idle temps in my SilverStone case.



Load is 62-68C in demanding games with 70% fan speed. I thought heat might be an issue and I'm happy to say it isn't.

I just ordered the EVGA 260 216 FTW from Newegg last night. Should be a good upgrade from this 9800 gt. I figured at 19201200 res it was the best solution foe me. Can't wait.

Got my Asus ENGTX260 with 216 cores today, only had time to check Far Cry 2 but gave me double the fps than my old XFX 8800 GTS 640Mgs

I just got my new rig built with an evga gtx260-216 55mm "ssc" 675mhz (about as fast as the original stock gtx280). Got the card from Newegg.

What a massive upgrade from nvidia 7800gs agp! I don't plan on overclocking this stock overclocked gfx card. I hope to avoid the "PSOD" (pink/purple screen of death)...
