What problems do you have with your GTX260 anyways?
Obviously the tech guy he dealt with was an IDIOT, because the card is powered by the PCIE power connector from your PSU, the PCIe slot voltage should never be changed, regardless of the card you are running, be it a 260 or a 290 :D what matters is that your PSU can provide enough amps to your card when in full load - people usually up their voltage to help in overclocking the bus ! people working tech support should be better trained! :D
