Gtx 280 Vs Gtx 260 - Page 3

post #21 of 24
If ya wanna spend 459 on each gtx280,times 3 plus 3 hydra coolers at 200 a piece,thats 2100 in video.I cant justify spending that much money to run high fps for crysis.I have 2 evga gtx 260 sc,runs great in crysis on the highest settings and cod4 both at 1680.Very happy with my choice.

Countzz upgrade your CRT to a 26 or 30 inch LCD monitor first then worry about graphics cards. I dont think a 800w power supply could run tri sli anyway...your best bet is to just buy 2 gtx 260's and call it a day.
