[EVGA] *55nm* EVGA GTX 260 Core 216 Now In Stock at EVGA.com - Page 3

post #21 of 55
IMHO, I'd wait and see what the 285 brings to the table, that would still allow you plenty of time to use your step-up.

Worse case, it's not all that and you can grab a 55nm 260 if they prove to be clocking beasts

Hopefully we'll both be able to read some reviews tomorrow.

One a side note, I read the pdf spec sheet on the 260, and it states 9.5" long, so it lost an inch

Wait, so this WILL be cheaper than the 65nm GTX 260 Core 216 right?

If it is, I may reconsider my future purchase on the 4870 1GB..

Looks like there will be a bit of price gouging in the beginning but im sure it will go down later. Im sure it will go down to 250 or so at least.

You think hold off for the GTX 280 55nm or just blow the SC edition I have now for the new 55nm version? I mean I'm happy with that I have but of course having the possibility for something better/smaller is a nice thing to have albeit for only 60 some days left
Why not save up $100 bucks and get the GTX 285 when it's released on January 8th? It can't hurt.

How long is 9800GTX+ ?

And does it consume less power than 9800GTX+ ?

Depending on how good it is, we don't know how much it'll hurt.

I reckon they'll drop the prices to what they should be after GTX285&295 are released. Then they'll OverSuperDuperclockedUltraFTW the prices on those.

I can't understand why anyone would want this card when you can get a new BFG 280 for $25 more bucks, except for maybe a step-up but even then is it worth it over a 260 65nm?
