Default XFX GTX 260 XXX SLI Performance

I endeavoured to write this review without any preconceptions of the outcome. Ask on most forums which card is 'best' and the reply will most likely be HD 4870. Best is, however, a figure of speech. If you are talking bang per buck then I have to agree that the HD 4870 is perhaps the better buy than the GTX260 XXX. If you are talking overall power then I would have to edge towards the GTX260 XXX, especially if you are gaming at a higher res and prefer to slap on some AA/AF filtering. The main advantage the GTX260 XXX has over its rival is the additional memory which enables the GTX260 XXX to take less of a hit once the trimmings are applied. With the GTX you are getting a cherry picked card from a top tier manufacturer that has been speed binned for performance. XFX have also included a very good game, which inevitably adds to the cost of the overall package.
