Yeah, I really wanted a GTX 260...couldn't find any in my budget, though. I'm happy with the GTS 250 for now. :) I'll definitely upgrade later.

Well, the dude on eBay never payed up...so I still have the 9800 GTX. For fun I'm gonna try baking it and I'll see what happens. :)

Maybe I can sell the (hopefully working) 9800 GTX and this GTS 250 to get a GTX 260 or something...

Never got back to y'all. :)

After baking, the card was still non-functional. Finally someone bought and paid for it, so that's gone. Now, however, I can upgrade substantially. :D Just got a 1 GB GTX 460!

I wish I had a broken video card so I could try baking it.

:D

When my bro's GTS 250 dies (yes, he inherited it from me after I got the 460), maybe I 'll just have to send it to you. ;)
