Default What does the GTX 260 eat up?

What kinda settings/game (settings in specific games) does the 260 216-core eat with no problem? Not SLi please, I'm too poor to do that stuff . Also, what would you expect a 260 216 core and a GTX275 to go for in mid-september?

I can run Empire: Total War on max settings, 1600x1200. Same with UT3 and Far Cry 2.

I thought you had a 260. I was referring to the gx2.

Just ran both cards in the same machine today and saw a 30C difference.
