I was saving up for a Nvidia Geforce GTX260 but I went to my local computer store, and they put the GTS 250 30% Off and It was like that for only 1 more day. Anyways I bought it and sli'd it with my other gts 250 so now i have a GTS 250 Sli, Did i make a mistake on using my money to sli my GTS 250? What will my GTS 250 Sli be equivalent too? Is it better than a GTX 260?

Its Pcie 1.1 X16 both of the slots both together cost me $208 as i got them both on special. Also, A GTX285 cost $260 and a GTX260 cost $200 and apparently my card is as powerfull as GTX285 in sli so i guess i got a good deal. Also My cards are running hotter than usual in sli o_0 wtf

If its x16 by x4, then youll see some decrease in performance

I just did the GTA IV benchmark:

GTS 250 - SLI Disabled All max settings 1680x1050 :

26.69

GTS 250 - SLI All max settings 1680x1050:

43.22FPS Average

Each card gives off radiant heat
One card is picking up the radiant heat of the other, and vice versa

Awesome! But does it come near the 5850? The GTS 250's In SLI from the benchmarks iv just recently seen it gets equal fps to the GTX285 or a little more.
