Looking to upgrade from GTX260

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I think its time to say goodbye to my 2x EVGA GTX 260 core 216's, and invest in a new gpu. i like the evga gtx 670 w/ 4gb of vram and backplate, but im open to suggestions especially given the possible sales this upcoming weekend. realistically, im looking for something that i can get the best bang for my buck.
thanks all

The card you mentioned would be an awesome choice. Depending on your budget, the only other card I would look into would be a 660Ti.

Glad to see someone that still has some love for SLI 260's

haha theyve done me well for the past few years, but theyre running a bit too hot for my liking, even now back at stock settings and 100%fan, there hitting 70-85+c. when im really not playing any games. however, ill probably keep one after i get a new or two new gpu's just for a physX dedicated card. i mean ****. why not right? lol.
