    yeah, i do have to question the need for a full review of more than one reference card. at least it can be used as a driver comparison i suppose

    Wow, i never knew it ran THAT hot! The GTX260 certainly does become more appealing now it has dropped in price, and has a tiny margin over the HD4870.

    Personally, it would interesting to see a similar GTX260 review, to see how much it will OC in comparison.

    and yet it actually puts out a lot less thermal energy than the 260
