The XFX GTX 260 Black Edition is an incredibly impressive piece of hardware. It would have been nice to have a GeForce GTX 280 to compare this card to, but I suspect this card would give it a good run for its money. When you factor in overclocking, the GTX 260 Black Edition is an excellent choice for $329.99 at Newegg.com.
With the Double Lifetime Warranty, the XFX GTX 260 Black Edition carries one of the best warranties in the market. Couple that with the bundled game and this becomes quite a compelling package. Power consumption also was comparable or lower than that of the HD 4870, making price the only negative as the HD4870 retails for $90 less at $239.99 plus shipping.
At the end of the day the GTX 260 Black Edition is giving you near GeForce GTX280 performance for $70 less as they retail for $399.95. If you are gaming between 1680x1050 and 1920x1200, then the GTX 260 Black Edition is the card for you. Anything higher than that and you may want to look into SLI or a stronger card.
Legit Bottom Line: XFX pulls out all the stops with the GeForce GTX 260 Black Edition and gives you a graphics card that will play current game titles at mainstream monitor resolutions.
