I currently run a 9800GTX+ 512MB Vid card, I was considering upgrading to a GTX 260 but do no know how much of a performance boost I would see. Has anyone seen both cards perform and know what kind of fps I would see? I run a 1680 x 1050 resolution monitor. I have read several forums but I have not seen any actual head to head benchmarks of both cards. Thanks.

GTX216 will be better for now and for the future.but a 55nm refresh is coming soon so its up to you to decide when to buy.

Thanks. I had 2 8800GT's in SLI but I found the cards got very hot. I get slightly better performance out of my one 9800GTX+ than I did out of 2 8800GT's and the the 9800GTX+ runs 20-30 degrees cooler. I think I will wait until the 55nm versions of the GTX200 series come out.
