XFX GeForce GTX 260


$374.42 Released June, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Lifetime manufacturer's warranty (parts & labour)! 3-way SLI is an option for those crazy enough to try. Surprisingly quiet for a dual-GPU card.

The Cons:Runs pretty hot even under normal operation. Big enough to really mess with a case's airflow. There are a number of similar or better-performing DX11 cards available from both Nvidia and ATI for a similar price.

The XFX GeForce GTX 260 series contains 2 cards. Both of the cards contain the stock specification 896MB of DDR3 VRAM connected through a 448bit bus and use the stock NVIDIA cooler. One card is overclocked while the other remains at the stock 576MHz/1998MHz timings.
