You need to look up what the words you are writing mean- this card can't be deemed an "epic failure" in any sense of the words.

He was just fishing Rollo...and you bit.


A performance bridge between the 260 and 280 with relative stepping in price is only a good thing IMO.

So what's the lowest price anyone has seen on these new 216 sp cards? I'm considering one since I could probably sell my 8800GTX on ebay and buy a 260 for LESS.

The standard 260 can be had for under $250 though, while the new one seems to be around $300-$320. The added price isn't worth it IMO. If it was more like $275 it'd be worth it over the standard 260.

The evga 216 cards are $300 plus $8 shipping and they have a $20 mail in rebate. I don't really count MIRs since they're just as likely to not work.

The standard evga card is $270 with free shipping, plus a $40 MIR. Other brands go as low as $240 with free shipping (plus $30 MIR).

There's about a $70 difference between the cheapest standard 260 and the cheapest 216 shader version, not including MIRs.

I wouldn't count them for any brand except eVGA. They have a very good fulfillment house. Every MIR I've sent when buying eVGA cards has taken four weeks or less from the day I mailed in the forms to when the check was in hand.

Other companies have not been nearly as easy to deal with or as fast to process claims.

Wow that's pretty fast.

I had a few from Coolermaster that took 9 months and one from D-Link that was denied after 6 months because it supposedly didn't have the UPC (even though I have a box with the UPC cut out).

eVGA with a rebate might be the ticket then...

Just ordered 2 of these babies seeing as overclocked they perform nearly as good as 280 in sli. I see it as a steal at 279each.



Now who's gonna help a first time SLI buyer how I make everything work when I get these?
