just bought a new 216 off ebay for 100.

Retro gaming stuff juggling ftmfw

I took another look at the GTX275's GTA IV numbers and realised I'd be throwing money away on it.

Better late than never... just got my XFX GTX260 Black edition yesterday for $180 with MIR

Upgraded from a eVGA GTS8800 640Mb. My case being an Antec Solo I had to cut the drive bay with a metal saw to make the new card fit but no too big a deal.

I checked other models (higher one) but the XFX was so cheap now, I decided to go for that one as the nv300 won't be out this year and 275, 285 and 295 don't seem to be worth the money.

So far, I love it. I made my PC a silent one and this card is dead silent at 40% fan speed (idle or desktop) and using Rivatuner to control the fan/temperature. Playing WoW few hours never got me above 60% fan (audible, but not much) and I am playing 1920x1200 at 8AA 16Ani all options maxed. Fully stable.

Almost an overkill for WoW except that I like to play with all options maxed out

Just picked up a GTX 260
Gigabyte GTX260 OC
put it into a machine that multi-boots into several versions of Linux and WinXP Pro
Quick Question for anyone farmiliar with Mandriva 2009.1
Is there a graphics driver available thats better than the 6100 and later driver that comes with Mandriva?
Is that driver OK? ie will it drive the cars to somewhere around its optimum?

Thanks... Philip.
