yea but the deal with newegg is pretty nice, its gonna be $280 after rebate and it comes with Far Cry 2 which is $50 for the pc

$280 - $50 = $230, so basically its not a rip off, even though i already got Far Cry 2 on my 360 and im about 23% into the game. Thats where ebay comes in though

wait nvm the reg 260 comes with far cry 2, but i dont know how to superclock ?
