Well I was holding out for the X2, but it's gonna be a while before they're out and if I wanted 2 X2's I'd have to get a new mobo, as well as possible poor scaling problems with 4 GPU's. As much as everyone cuss's nVIDIA chipsets I've godda say a love this Striker2F and I don't wanna swap it.

The GTX260's seem far better VFM than the 280's, too. I guess I'll find out if I've made the right choice.

Thumbs up Re: Official "I just got my GeForce GTX 280 or GTX 260" thread

I'd be interested in seeing some GTX 260 SLi action myself. There are hardly any reviews out there with them in SLi.

I can FINALLY play King Kong:Gamer's Edition without it dipping below 60 fps It only took about 3 card revisions later to make that possible lol

Anyone else play this game? The only map that still pummels the card is "In the Mud". I'll get you next time In the Mud!

I'm still dinking around trying to find my max OC and I think I'm almost there. I was running 742|2600 and saw some glitches in Vantage. I kept the core and memory the same but backed the shaders down to 1550. Now all glitches are gone and I'm looping. Best score I've done on a single GPU so far is 11.989K for GPU alone.

Just ordered a GTX280. The min fps of this card was the factor I choose for the GTX280 instead of 2 HD4870s.
