One thing I like about the 260 is I don't need a new power supply. 6 pins ftw.

just got mine installed (BFG OC) - no hassle so far!

runs very quiet at vista desktop - better than 8800gtx (or maybe its the new power supply)

I saw someone with a screenshot of EVGA precision running - but when precision starts now it tells me no recognised hardware.. any ideas?

camera batteries flat
