It's been a while since we've seen anything from MSI, but they're back with a vengeance today working on the well known and much loved GTX 260. Carrying with it a new Lightning tag that we haven't seen from the company before, we'll see what exactly MSI have going on here.
To be completely honest, considering the age of the GTX 260 MSI really have to bring us something special to wow us. Since the launch of the card we've seen many companies attack the model and we've seen some big clocks, fancy coolers and good bundles offered.
Today we intend to find out if the MSI GTX 260 Lightning we have here is something worth looking at or just another GTX 260 with a fancy name. But before we have a look at the card and its performance let's see what's going on with the bundle.
