  1. I'm looking for some expert opinions... =)

    I currently have a BFG NVIDIA GeForce GTX-260 OC MaxCore 55 video card and I'm trying to decide if I should purchase a second one for around $70-80 and SLI them... or try to buy an improved replacement card for a similar price and possibly try to sell my current card.

    This current card is a:
    • GeForce GTX 260 OC MAXCORE
    • GDDR3
    • Memory: 896 MB
    • GPU Frequency: 655 MHz
    • ALU Frequency: 1404 MHz
    • Memory Frequency: 1125 MHz
    • Memory Bus Width: 448 bits
    • Number of ALUs: 216
    Any suggestions? Advice would be greatly appreciated! =)

    Well if you have an sli motherboard and a decent power suppy its a pretty cheap way to double your framerates in most games.

    You will be pretty hard pushed to find a single similar pefrorming directx 11 gpu for that kind of money,

    True. Just make sure you know how to SLI them properly.
