Off-Topic – New Graphics card – BFG GTX260 OC2 Maxcore Edition

Gpuz results for BFG Maxcore GTX260

Well after a month or so of having to use my old ATI X1900XT I decided to buy myself a new card, I had to RMA my old evga 8800 GTS as it decided to totally freak out and only boot in 16 colours, looking around I found a decent card which seems to have the best bang for buck value the BFG GTX260 OC2 Maxcore Edition.  I only got it yesterday morning but I’ve been playing with it overnight and it does seem to be a beast, 8XQ AA with 4X AF and Oblivion is still totally playable, no benchmarks yet though as 3D Mark doesn’t want to run, probably due to a combination of things including NVIDIA beta drivers, Windows 7 and the ATI drivers refusing to completely uninstall.

Edit: I forgot to mention it also came with 3D Mark Vantage, Far cry 2 and a neat LED torch, this was a nice surprise  as the freebies weren’t mentioned on the site I purchased the card from or BFG’s website.

  • What’s up, is there anybody else here?
    If it’s not just all bots here, let me know. I’m looking to network
    Oh, and yes I’m a real person LOL.

    See ya,

  • There probably is some js as I modified a wordpress template, don’t think I could write a site like this in pure html, maybe when html 5 becomes a proper standard we can all ditch js and flash

  • Ahoy
    I used this excellent utility DRM-removal and used it for removing drm from itunes protected files a years ago, it did it well, btw. Then I bought mp3 player and it could’t play my wma files so I decided to convert wma to mp3 with drm-removal. It works like a charm! Just in a few moves, you only need to click “Add” button and choose the folder of wma files. They will convert all the files at once at a really high speed. If you have the same problem and need to convert wma to mp3, you should try drm-removal!
    I am big fan of audiobooks and actually wonder, if it legal. I bought a book (now its mine!) from napster, but may be its drm and I can’t copy it to my MP3 player!! Thats dick!! I can remove drm – but what about legacy?

    thanks in advance!
