GTX 260 for sale

Post by PanzerMeyer » 09 Jun 2011, 09:35

I don't know if anyone else here had an outdated video card besides Grifter but I'm wondering if anyone would be interested in buying my GTX 260? I'm asking $75.00 for it. I have the original box and documentation as well.

Is this still for sale? My wife's card may have taken a dump. How does this card compare to an 8800 GTS performance wise?

Also, what are the power reqs. for this card? She only has a 450W PSU with one Rail for video card power. I could possibly use an adapter to convert two Molex plugs into one, but that's only a work around. Thx.

Hey Softball, I would recommend at least a 500w power supply for the 260 and yes, I still have it! I guess we can talk more about it tonight on teamspeak. :-)

As far as performance goes, the 260 is significantly faster than the 8800. I was using a 9800 GTX when I upgraded to the 260 and even between those 2 cards I noticed much better frame rates in most of my games.

Well, as it turns out, I remembered I had an 8800GTX from my old computer. It has 2 PCI-e power plugs in it (The 8800 GTS had one) so I had to use a Molex to PCI-e power adapter. So right now she is using the 8800GTX. However, I am still interested in buying the card as she may want to play Star Wars TOR and that will most likely require a newer card (along with some other new parts, CPU, RAM, PSU).

I'll chat with you on TS tonight about it.

So just let me know when you're ready and I'll ship out the card to you! :-)
