Any opinions on this card?

Found two reviews:

http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/foru...x-260-216sp-896mb-super-overclock-review.html

http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/2938/gigabyte_geforce_gtx_260_super_overclock_video_card/index.html

which both give it the thumbs up. Beats a stock 275 in the benches.

HDMI with s/pdif cable and a copy of Batman AA are definite pluses.
Will be upgrading from an 8800GTS 320Mb. Current monitor res is 1680x1050, with some gaming at 1920x1080 on the telly.

Cheers, Dave.

The price is to close to the 5850, if you have no preference for ATI or Nvidia then I would pay the extra £40 and get a 5850 when they hit.

Any idea how much faster the 5850 will be over this card?

The new ATI cards do look good, but have seen that the 58xx has some driver issues in DOW2 which is one of the games I'll be playing, plus was going to get Batman AA anyway which equates to a £30 saving on the Steam price.
