razor Posted April 23, 2009 Posted April 23, 2009 so last fall/winter was the first season of the OCC Fantasy Football League - it was tons of fun, every team owner was cool, and I ended up winning the championship! not only did I perform some textbook domination (which was very satisfying), I got an awesome prize too. so, here is - courtesy of Bosco - my prize: a spankin new XFX GTX 260 Black Edition. pardon my crappy pics, but I wanted to show off my card, and a size comparison between the GTX and my 8800 GTS 512. this card is a monster! and here's a few screenshots, comparing the performance of the 8800 GTS to the GTX 260. both cards were left at stock speeds, and run on the machine in my sig at its posted specs. the first two pics are comparison shots using 3DMark06, and the last is the GTX 260 after a 3DMark Vantage run @ the Performance preset. left to right: 8800 GTS 3DMark06, GTX 260 3DMark 06, and GTX 260 3DMark Vantage the synthetic benchmarks dont tell the whole story, though. this GTX 260 is much more powerful in game situations than the 8800 GTS ever was. I'm consistently getting between 35-40 FPS in Crysis Warhead with all settings set to "gamer" at 1440x900. I didnt run FRAPS, but in COD WAW I've got everything maxed out - including AA and AF - running at 1680x1050 with no slowdowns or hiccups, and motion is extremely fluid. my GPU [email protected] production is up significantly, too - and I think that's my favorite bonus from this upgrade. sweet! Thank You Bosco and OCC!! :thumbs-up: Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
