    Alright guys, Im wanting to trade out this 260.

    Why, might you ask? Well, its a hell of a lot of power that i have in my rig going to waste. I dont fold, I have completed warhead and far cry 2 using it, but the other 90% of gaming i do on this thing is low level (CS:S, TF2, etc) so i really dont need such a powerful card.

    The card itself is in MINT condition, the only change I have made is to flash the card to the FTW bios (666 core, 1404 shaders & 1107 memory). This card really does fly, It'll run warhead all gamer + 2xAA with no lag whatsoever, and counterstrike? never drops below 250FPS :)laugh:).

    Pictures:

    Here the card is, sat next to my patriots and now dead audigy after my new Cosmos had arrived:

    Heres the highest I overclocked the card and the resulting E-Penis score:

    [​IMG]

    So, what do I want for the card? Im looking to do a swap for either:

    I WANT A 4850 & £40! LET ME KNOW!

    good luck, I've been trying to sell my 260 so I can upgrade(as opposed to you wanting to downgrade). No one seems to want one in the States for $180. And just 2 weeks ago, it seemed everyone was looking for a 260

    Free bump

    Well when you can buy one brand new for $199.00 what would be the point in paying $180.00 ?

    I will pay $150.00 right now .

    8800GT is what you traded to get the gtx 260 in the first place so to even consider a 8 series is daft
    just keep the damn card youll end up only wanting to upgrade this way you can keep the gtx 260 for a while thats what i plan to do

    this is the best gtx 260 overclocker in the UK period

    i dunno why tatty sold it to kyle

    i bought my gtx 260 from paulieg and he bought a 4850 iceQ the best 4870 you can get and he ended up 3 weeks later wanting a 4870 i think he has a 4870

    a gtx 260 can smoke a 4870

    even with my rubbish x2 5000BE its still a beast of a card one that should last a long time due to ever improving drivers

    I agree with MilkyWay, keep the card, you'll wish you had. You wanted a GTX260 so much. And I dont really use mine to its full potential that often, but I know that as games keep coming, I can keep playing. :D
    Free bump in any case.

    I am starting to have second thoughts, purely because this is the fastest 260 in the UK (well, revision 1 atleast) . . .

    lol, what makes you say its the fastest?
     
  23. kyle2020 Guest

    according to tatty, he overclocked it and updated it against some form of database (its name skips my mind) and apparently no other card matched the speeds he set.
