nVIDIA has displayed a fondness for odd memory buses and sizes recently.  It started with the 640Mb 8800GTS and now continues with the EVGA GeForce GTX 260 896MB FTW, with a 448 bit memory bus.  In the testing over at The Tech Lounge, they decided that this is their preferred card over the GTX 280, thanks to reduced power consumption, noise and heat as well as price.  Read on and see if you agree.

“The GTX 260 is exceptionally powerful, quiet, even power-miserly. It too has dropped in price–you can find them for around $200 (!) with a rebate, anyway–although EVGA’s FTW is… more. However, I believe that the price premium is totally fair with the Step-Up Program, warranty, and ridiculous overclocking potential. If the 280 is a heavyweight, then the 260 is a ninja. And everyone knows that ninjas are cooler.”
