Final Thoughts


The GTX 260 really has had some good development since its release and it's nice to see that Palit has moved with the card. The Sonic version of this 55nm, 216 stream processor GTX 260 is great. Performance is great and the overall design with the choice of cooler is also great; the card really is just, great!


It helps fill a price gap that ATI currently don't have. If you want to spend more than a HD 4870, but not as much as a HD 4870 X2, get a GTX 260. If you want something that packs a bit more punch, though, and you're willing to spend a few extra dollars, get yourself the Palit GTX 260 Sonic SP216.


While on the topic of the SP216, this is an extremely important part to look for, otherwise you could well end up with a card based on the original 65nm design with 192 stream processors.


As we have just mentioned, the Palit GTX 260 Sonic 216SP is a great card; there's not really anything wrong with it and while the bundle might not include a full version game, it's one of the cheaper overclocked GTX 260s on the market which is a more important feature to most.
