Quoted from XFX GeForce GTX 260 Black Edition Reviews:Check out these quotes from XFX GeForce GTX 260 Black Edition reviews & previews
"...If youve budgeted $300 for your next graphics upgrade, XFXs GeForce GTX 260 Black should be at the very top of your list."
"XFX pulls out all the stops with the GeForce GTX 260 Black Edition and gives you a graphics card that will play current game titles at mainstream monitor resolutions."
"When the first GTX 260 went up against the first HD 4870, there was no contest. The HD 4870 won hands down. But seeing the performance of the Black Edition throughout all of benchmarks, I can't even tell if this card is related to a GTX 260 anymore. Faster than even a GTX 280, XFX's GTX 260 Black Edition just does everything right: good bang for buck, exceptional performance in its class, a great bundle, XFX's comprehensive Double Lifetime warranty, and comes with Far Cry 2 -- if you had any thought of buying a GTX 260, or even a GTX 280, the first place you should look at is right into the darkness. This is the best XFX card Neoseeker has reviewed in a long time -- perhaps ever -- and is a hand's down winner of our Editor's Choice award."
"The card oozes quality from both the cooling (the cooling fan hardly revved up at all during benchmarking), its looks and most importantly its performance. I have no doubt at all that the GTX260 Black Edition will have an effect on its bigger brother's sales and possibly ATI's HD4870 512MB cards. How it fairs against the ATI HD4870 1024MB card, I cannot say until we get one for review (watch this space), but the ATI card will certainly have its work cut out if today's review is anything to go by. Would I buy one? Yes. Simply because it's hassle free, single core gaming at its best. Sure, the impending revision of the GTX280's will no doubt better the GTX260 '216', that's a given, but when you factor in price, performance and quality, along with an excellent included game, the GTX260 Black Edition should be up there on any serious gamer's list. So until the newer GTX280's arrive or the much hyped 260GX2, I can see no reason not to recommend the GTX260 Black Edition and give it OC3D's 'Gamers Choice' stamp of approval."
"The XFX GTX260 Black Edition video card does exactly what it is supposed to do. It beat the HD4870 1GB model at the video performance game while still competing on the price point. This it does quite well. In every game tested except Call of Juarez, the Black Edition's performance was superior to the ATI HD4870 1GB card. The only other time the red camp offering was close, was in World in Conflict. In this benchmark, the performance differential was only 1 frame per second better than the Black Edition GTX260. The additional 24 shader processing cores and higher clock speeds allow for performance in the GTX280 range from this card. The comparison GTX280 in this review is an overclocked model and this offering from XFX still comes close to equaling the performance laid down by the Zotac GTX280 AMP! Edition. This is really a pretty strong performance from the card. The Special Edition nature of this package shows when the chips are down, it has the power to run just about any game out there as a single GPU gaming solution."
