So, Today I won a Gigabyte Geforce GTX 260 216 Core Super Overclock from Gigabyte, and I was hoping for a HD 5770 anyways What is better in peformance also by the way the GTX 260 is 216 Core and it also has a giant Overclock it even beats the GTX 275 Thats how much of a overclock it is.









Anyways is this card better than the HD 5770, and no I wasnt just picking out benchmarks where it beats the GTX 275 have a look if you want.

GTX 260 is faster than 5770 but it has more power consumption and noise.

i agree but i firmly believe in the nvidia series. most of your top of the line systems including alienware and asus all use the nvidia series as far back as i can remember the go the fx the gs and now the best laptops out there use the gtx 460 which is 1.5 ddr5 and to come from a lineage of when i was first pc gaming and building they have been my firm choice. i once had a 256mb 400 ocd geforce 9800GT and it lasted me 4 years before i replaced the whole setup. both companies have been fighting for the top spot for so long its like the intel vs amd wars and im glad because it forces both companies to constantly improve their products. the gtx 260 is a solid built card and you will be happy with it so good luck and what did you enter or have to do to recieve such a gem. i am jealous!!

The 9800GT hasn't been around for four years as it replaced the 8800GT in 2008. :heink:

lol

Sometimes we take it for granted but I guess you can't believe everything you read!

@OP,

My opinion is that since you have a brand new card (unopened?), I would sell it and buy a GTX 460.

I have heard great things about both GTX 260 and GTX 460 but I think I just use the GTX 260 until I can afford an GTX 560

my mistake maybe it was the 5900 series any way just wanted to show the proven quality of nvidia cards i remember getting the card in 04 at frys electronics and i ran it in a home built sysem that had an ecs board with a p4 3.2ht processor and i ocd the gpu and the processor. i think i had 2x256 ddr ram and it ran all the games back then great. ecs is crap i know but it was a budget build and yes you are correct. its been a few years so i apologize for posting without first checking. it was a BFG and it was 256 with 4oomhz ramdac and i paid over 200 for it back then. it was a solid card and i kept it in that pc for 4 years before i gave it to a friend who put it in his dell to upgrade from the onboard 64mb graphics.

by the way the year was 04 so the other card i am talking about is probably the right one. back then that was alot of card for its time. since this post was about his gtx 260 i really like the gtx 460 but free is free and you cant complain about that.
