    I'm probably getting a GTX260 c192 1792mb this weekend, the best part is it would be a free upgrade from the 8800GTS :D

    Pretty much :D
    My grandfather ordered a Dell desktop with a GTX260 just so he could run the native resolution of his 22" LCD :eek: He was coming from a P4HT with Intel Extremely Bad Graphics, so he didn't quite know what he had ordered. So he told me that if I provided an nVidia card that would work with his LCD and not lag, I could have the GTX260! :eek:
    Needless to day, I'm taking him up on the offer. According to Buck Nasty, it should be good fo ~2x the PPD in F@H as well :)

    @ EROCKER.. looks good... you do the cable sleeving on 24 pin yourself? How hard if so... I have always wanted a case where everything is upside down.. so you get to see the top (pretty) side of the vid cards...

    :eek: Does he play games? Is the offer still going? I've got a silent Asus 8400gs that hasn't even been used yet, still got the box and everything I think. If he won't do it for a stranger, then I'll just send it to you and you can tell him you just found it in your cloest :roll:
    That purple 'n' black is lookin' nice :cool:

    No never, I just know they are capable of good #'s according to what I've heard.
