I just dont understand why the XFX GTX260 XXX is £20 more than the XFX GTX260 Black Edition even thought the Black has higher clocks. Hmmm... Weird

Well this was taken over 4 months ago, so things may well have changed a bit.

It is interesting to me that with more-or-less the same setup with the 2 mid range 260 cards switched out for the 280, the stock 280 3dmarks make the decision of 1 card vS 2 a very simple one.

Also shoddy to reflect that XFX use exactly the same packaging on the 280 as with the 260, even down to forgeting a 8pin pcie adapter.

Holy thread revival !
