Recieved my GTX 260 today ^^ Epically pleased

I went for the XFX Version over the EVGA version as I won't be upgrading my card for another good 8 months or so now, + The XFX version looks so much cooler . . .

I managed to OC to the EVGA SSC Speeds, but haven't gone much past that for now, anyways - Heres some pictures

Not all of the pictures are the best, was pretty excited ^.^ Couldn't believe how vast it is!

Heres the OC;

Photo time!

Yay, package

Possibly the best box ever?

Mm...another box...im seeing a theme here

Contents . . .

Thar she blows!

Free as a bird

Its huuuge!

I like this . . .

Compared to me olden' X1650 Pro

Just vast

This shall be its home!

Messy messy! Just wanted to have it in and working before cabling up

Compared to my 8800GT... Its about 3 times the size

After tidying up the cables


Yay for pictures, hope you peoples enjoyed ^.^ Would definatly reccomend one

I will not need heating at all this year, this + the quadcore heats the room up a treat!

Thanks for the side by side pic. Now I know just how big this thing really is.

Tis' very heavy too!

I have that blue fan holding it up, the PCI-e slot, the little screw and a ty-wrap, I still think it sinks downwards on the right though

You should paint the inside of your case black. Would look awesomer than it already does.
