Love my GTX 260

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I just received it yesterday, and I have to say i'm blown away by it. I'm playing on my parents 32in TV and Its amazing. It idles around 37C, and never goes above 50C when playing games like Crysis. worth the 220 I spent on it. Going to try and overclock it tonight and see where it gets me.

I've got my GTX 260 set at 730 core with linked shader and 1053 memory. You can definitely get it higher than stock. Enjoy your new card; it's a monster!

you must be super stoked, I got mine a month ago and its absoultely the bee's nees...its awesome, its a mammoth.

I took my box the other week to my mates joint and plugged it into his enormous plasma, played dead space & looked at crysis, fallout and GRID and we were all in AWE, and my 2 other friends were like that PWNS the PS3 in speed/graphic detail in high def. Absolutely owns it.

I was AMAZED by the detail on the guy's suit in deadspace on HD - tripped me right out, I have an HD monitor here 22' but that plasma was something else, GTX 260 is A MONSTERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!

i haven't tried to overclock it yet, going to try later tonight. Going to use the EVGA Precision, which is an amazing program, it has everything I need. My fan is set at around 90, I was surprised that it wasn't that loud, compared to my old 8800GT this thing is quiet
