Never use windows experience as a standard. The heavily clocked gtx 260 would perform near a gtx 275. The gtx 280 is faster and can overclock to increase the gap in performance. How much is your friend offering the card for? What is your current setup as well as the resolution you play at?

I think the 240 cores on the 275 would win that comparison.

k.now i went and told my friend to show me that the gtx 275 is powerful than that gtx 260 overclocked stock version.now he ran the benchmark in batman arkham asylum
he got the following results with phsyx at high
gtx 275
min-24
max=79
avg=51

superclocked gtx 260
min=30
max=80
avg=53

now is the 275 worth the extra investment?or is it the fault in the game.both the cards were tested on following rigs

AMD Phenom 2*965BE
nVIDIA Geforce GTX 275 STOCK VGA
4GB DDR3 RAM

Intel Core i7-860
superclocked nvidia geforce gtx 260
4gb ddr3 ram

Only benchmarks on the same CPU/MOBO/RAM/HDD/OS combo give a accurate comparison, different setup just give an indication. You should redo the benchmarks swapping the cards between the 2 computers, that will give the real result.
