Spectacular card 07/30/2009
More GDDR, more ROPs, more power. This card replaces my 8800GT (which, to be honest, was a fantastic workhorse and an excellent card in its own right.) As a gamer, my 8800gt was starting to fall behind, so I upped to the GTX260, and it's a fantastic piece of hardware.
It does draw more power, and it's a 2-slot card vs. the 1-slot of my old 8800GT. Nothing to dock and egg for, though -- find me a high-end card that doesn't do either of those things!
Had I done a slight bit more research, I might have discovered the GTX 260 / 216, which nVidia made as the second generation, adding 20 or so more pipes to the card. The performance difference isn't significant, and not worth trying to return the card in order to upgrade again.
