    Gigabyte Technology will very soon be rolling out a new Radeon R7 260X card, a model dubbed GV-R726XOC-1GD which is factory overclocked, has a custom cooler and packs 1 GB of GDDR5 memory - half the amount found on most R7 260Xs.

    The incoming card features a blue PCB, Ultra Durable 2 components, a dual-slot cooler with a 10 cm fan, a GPU clock of 1188 MHz, a 128-bit memory interface, a memory frequency of 6500 MHz, and dual-DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort outputs. The R726XOC-1GD can be found listed on pre-order @ 106.70 Euro.

    That's actually a pretty high clock.

    Pretty nice specifications. But I can never get used to Gigabyte video card looks. It seems really basic. Aesthetics do count when one is looking at buying one card or another.

    Only if you value form over function. If your case doesn't have a side window, then aesthetics are irrelevant. The only time you'll see the card is when you open the case. :rolleyes:

    Their higher-end stuff looks great TBH, the black PCB with a black blocky (not the round version) Windforce X3 (and X1/X2 too I think), Tho I gotta hand it to ASUS with their new DCUII R9 290/Xs, with a standard black and sticker for optional color preferences.
