GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 260 Graphics Card

 

Introduction

 

Like the GTX 280 which has dropped in price over the last few weeks, the GTX 260 has followed suit. Whether you're a fan of ATI or not, the release of the HD 4800 series and their performance to price ratio has forced NVIDIA to cut margins on the new GTX line-up of cards and give us an extremely powerful card for what now resembles a fair price.

 

To date we've only had a look at one GTX 260 which came with a massive out of the box overclock; what this means is it hasn't really given us the ability to completely come to terms with what the GTX 260 offers in its cheapest form; the stock form.

 

Today we will have a look at how the GTX 260 sits in the current line-up of high-end NVIDIA cards which of course includes the more expensive GTX 280 along with seeing how it compares against the new 9800 GTX+ which is beginning to show up in the retail world.

 

Before we get stuck into all the numbers, though, let's have a look at package GIGABYTE has given us along with a closer look at the actual card.
