My System Specs

Default For those who just bought a GTX 260 Core 216 SC

I'm sure that I am not the only person who bought a GTX 260 on special this week at NCIX... The first thing you should do when you get the card is to register it at EVGA | Intelligent Innovation ... not only you will get your lifetime warranty but you will get a nice CD-Key for 3DMark Vantage Advanced Edition! You also get a 21 Eve trial ... but you can get a 30 days for free on EVE Website.

Then after, you can download the EVGA Precision tool!

This is some some quick tips you have to consider when you just bought your nice GTX 260

System | Ragnarok
Case Antec 900
PSU Corsair TX750W
CPU Intel Core i7 2700K 3.5GHZ
Motherboard ASUS P8Z68-V
Memory Corsair Vengeance Blue 8GB 2X4GB DDR3-1600 CL9-9-9-24
Video Card EVGA GeForce GTX 780
Sound Card ASUS Xonar DX

Sweet, I knew I bought this card for a reason... you forgot something though. The second thing you should do is fill out your mail-in rebate form for $20 :)
