Well, to bring you up to speed... I've been looking for a paticular XFX 260, and have had an Eye out for one for the last two months here, craigslist
, and ebay. And periodically scouring online US etailers to now avail. So today I found what I was looking for in China of all places, I knew that place has everything
. Anyways through google translation of their web page I think the only thing left to be done is to create an account and order this thing. But I still have to figure out what shipping has to be and while I do that I figure It might be a good time to run this by "OCN" to get a feel for how nuts I may be.

I wouldn't order from China... That aside, what is so different about that specific card that you'd be willing to order it from China? Are you trying to have two identical cards? If your just looking for a similar XFX card, check out this one on newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-398-_-Product

They tend to go for around $130 used here on OCN. Post a wanted thread. I grabbed an XFX Black edition 65nm 216SP here a few months ago for $130 shipped.
I know... That price is awesome. However I'm trying to keep one brand on the inside. If I had known these XFX were going to be so hard to come by I would have went w/ evga from the get-go.

Oh really? After some googling I found the same card, the XFX GX260XADJC on Compusa's website and it says it has 216 Stream Processors... http://www.compusa.com/applications/...14227&csid=_25


Newegg is notorious for randomly choosing not to upload all of a products specifications. Personally, I don't see why they do that... Then again, they do have a pretty large inventory to keep track of.

Also, if your going for SLi, you can use any two of the same cards, regardless of manufacturer. As long as both cards have the same physical specifications (ie. number of stream processors and amount/type of ram must be identical).

You can always bios flash the eVGA card with the same exact XFX bios of your current card. If it is for asthetics, then by all means get the same brand.

Yeah, I saw that too, it clearly is a 216 SP model.

EDIT: Scratch that.

This is strictly asthetics, exspecially since the main game I play is TF2.

Well, the one that you were considering purchasing from China has the same model number as the one on newegg. Also, only one person in the review seems to have complained about the number of SP's on his card.

Hm... even ZZF has it listed as 216 SP's... http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...odlist=froogle

It also appears as though the GX260XADJ (the one from China) can't be found anymore (well at least through google, XD). But, the GX260XADJC does appear to have 216 SP's. Let me find some more links and I'll post back here.

EDIT: Drats. GPU-z searching is down. Well, Tigerdirect (which looks exactly like the compusa site...) also has it listed as 216 SP's. Now, it is not impossible for someone to order one card and get the wrong card in the right box. There have been numerous occasions on which it has happened. Who knows. Newegg reviews are a toss up, some of them may be spot on, while others aren't very helpful. It seems bizarre that only one user on the egg claimed it had 192SP's while nobody else appears to have encountered such a problem...

This is the place that wanted $85 USC each but minum of 10... I created an account and have my converstion on page 1 of this topic.

http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/26...FX_GTX260.html

And whats up w/ the egg, they should know the number of SP's is critical information for a customer.

I don't know about that alibaba site. For some reason it's making me think about ebayers that sell hardware from Taiwan or Hong-Kong. It appears to be cheap, but then they charge you an arm and a leg for shipping. Even if the shipping isn't outrageous, is it worth risking it? Even if the newegg version somehow is only 192SP's, you'd at least be guaranteed your product.

Hmm. Come to think of it, you could call a newegg sales representative and ask if they could check the number of SP's on that specific card. They'd most likely be glad to help you out.

most gtx260's nowadays are 216sp, but imo EVGA GTX260 is the only way to go..

Lol..

When you are stuck with another brand, and looks mean a lot, you can't get another brand.

And on newegg reviews I've seen two comments on it being a 192 SP model.

Others may have just not opened GPU-z to see, or 2 people got the wrong card..
