GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 260 Graphics Card (Page 1)

If you want to get in on the GTX bandwagon but still find the 280 too expensive, the GIGABYTE 260 might be your answer.

GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 260 Graphics Card


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.
