    Stock Status - GTX 260

    Hey guys,

    I was just wondering what the deal is with your Nvidia GTX 260 stock levels, I've been checking sporadically and you never seem to have any in besides the ASUS one. Are you going to be getting any of the others in at any point soon?

    Thanks,

    Karl

    They are discontinued, no more stock avaliable, unless they find an alternative one.

    There are a few other models expected in shortly - will hopefully have a date for these as soon as possible.

    Re: Stock Status - GTX 260

    Discontinued? Is there a replacement for them on the Nvidia side?

    Thanks David, I'll keep checking in that case!

    Yes. The GTX 470 and 480 cards - where have you been
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Actually both are priced way above the GTX 260 mark.

    With no GTX 260s available, NVIDIA will leave themselves a big whole in their market. Hopefully fermi derived mainstream products shuldnt be too much longer, altho with the availability (or lack) of GTX 480/470s I wouldnt be on it.

    The GTX 260 wasn't exactly cheap at launch, it even needed a revision for it to be seen as reasonable in a price/performance sense.

    Oh im not disputing that, but they just have nothing in the £100 to £300 market without any GT200 based products.

    And thats a BIG hole.

    And that's what I meant, I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed they find some really, or start considering ATI.

    If you are considering HTPC Ati are definately worth a shot. Ful, featured HDMI, not to mention Directx11 and tesslation.
