Hola,

Looking at the gigabyte gxt 260 216core for a new build. Anyone own one of these babies? Never used a gigabyte GPU. I am tweaking my first build selections. I have shaved off some cost by downgrading from a Corsair 650w to the PSU listed below and used the xtra funds in my budget to move from a EVGA gts 250 to the gtx 260.

I am hitting the top range of my budget at this point ($800-850) which cannot go any further.

Build:

INtel i5 750 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
EVGA MOBO P ATX http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
BFG TECH GS-550 PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Gigabyte gtx 260 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Corsair xm3 4gb http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
500 GB hardrive and lite-on burner
Antec 300 illusion http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I will be using a five year old 17 screen hp vs17 http://reviews.cnet.com/lcd-monitors/hp-vs17/4505-3174_...

oh god please look at some ATi video cards and see what you like there too

Gigabyte doesnt make GPU's - they put stickers on the card and call it something

And your 17'' screen uuufffff, but seriously dont listen to anyone that comes up saying "oh at that res you dont need a powerful video card" bla bla its bs, noobs think it, its not so. But seriously that screen, you need something bigger.
