This particular card was obtained through EVGA's Step-Up program, which allows you to upgrade one time within the first 90 days of purchase. The card I traded in was an 8800GTS 512, certainly no slouch in the performance department however it did not support nVidia's new Hybrid SLI technology, which I reviewed earlier this month. While I wasn't blown away by the level of benefit that Hybrid SLI offers, it still does have some advantage for low-end SLI performance or high-end power savings. Hopefully I'll be more impressed with the GTX 260.
Join me as I take a closer look at the EVGA GTX 260.
