the gtx 260 (216) WAS a great card. the 192 isn't bad either.
if you get it CHEAP and don't mind the lack of directX11 . .or as a physX card.

what power supply do you have?

+1 its an old card that was good in its day but is now beaten by fairly low end cards. If its alot cheaper than a Radeon 5770/6770 and a 6770 is ovewr you budget you could consider it other wise forget it. How much can you get it for?

In its day a GTX 260-216 was in the same league as a Radeon 4870. It maxed at about 178W power.
I still have one, mothballed

You could think about going with a GTX 460 they are going for less than $150.00 on newegg and they blow the 260's away.

Yeah the GTX 260 was nice (I had the standard core one) but looking at it now its kindof a dead end. Too much hassle to SLI and too old to buy for actual $$.

seeing that they can run up 180 watts, running sli isn't a good idea for your system. but the two air cooled are cheaper.

really i don't think you'll find a 6770 or better or gtx 460 or better for the same price; esp if you sell the other 260 that you don't need.

the biggest draw back is its an old card and cannot support directX11. but at £44 and sell the other for £24; it might be a good deal IF i mean IF its a good upgrade from what you have now.
