Default GTX260 216+8800gt OR GTX275?

I can either get a gtx260 and keep my 8800gt for fizicks or get a gtx275...

Id like to use 3 monitors ,Would a gtx260/8800gt combo let me do that at all?

I cant afford to keep the 8800gt and get a 275


I'd like opinions and that

Also quite important is ,Will my Power Express 250w be able to handle the gtx275 or will I need to upgrade it?

http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/T...e/PowerExpress
Output:

* Voltage: +12V1 & +12V2 Max.
* Load: 21A (Peak Load: 25A) Min. Load 0A
* Output Voltage: 11.4VDC~12.6VDC
* Ripple & Noise: Less than 100mVpp

It has 2x 6 pins so does that add up to the needed 42A or what?

Did you say 250w?! A single 260GTX really wants 550w... I dunno. I think you'd run into problems. Oh it's a dedicated power supply! Sorry. I still think it might struggle with both cards...

No,I would intend to power just one card on the 250w thing, It only has 2x 6pin leads.


My regular 580w PSU can handle the 8800gt

(I used to run too many HDD's and a 640mb 8800GTS was the reason I needed the VGA PSU in the first place.)
