no... only the 192 is 200 dollars but i can also test my 192 at those same exact settings if you'd like

216 is 240.. then some rebates i suppose for it to be 215-220

another question.. dx9 or dx10...

for some reason warhead crashes upon boot in dx10, even after 2 installs, gahh so dx9. Although running just the first crysis I hardly notice any boosts using dx9 vs dx10 so I don't know how much it matters. So you would definitely back your gtx 260 216 SLI set up against a 4870 x2 or a 4870 xfire set up?

crysis likes nvidia better.. it is an nvidia optimised game

and the testing i showed you was with dx10... so you'd get even more fps out of dx9

well I hope you don't seriously think I'll be running those settings with something like a gtx 260 :P I'm saddened that most of the 9800 series were just toss ups trying to throw something under ATI's tires while nVidia countered the new 4XXX series :|

you don't have to bother with it unless you want too, and i don't know why that's be, are you using a 16:10 monitor or a 16:9 tv? sometimes widescreen tv's won't show 1440*900.

With that said, I'm using using that resolution b/c neither my 9800 gt nor my AMD 5000 BE can handle 1680*1050 without turning details down and lower than mainstream (medium) is horrible :\
