5 out of 5 eggsUnder rated!

Pros: Vary well built to say the least, no need to overclock this baby she already is....and when i say that if you try to overclock it just a tad more it will crash.

Cons: Know it will fit your case, Its able to do 3way sli but i would suggest buying 2 first to see if it will fit with your motherboard...and when i say that i mean your mobo could support 3way sli but the cards might not fit right.

Other Thoughts: I have two of these babys sli'ed and am in love, even after hours of play on the highest settings with AA to the max and everything under the sun(and yes one card can do that easy), they keep pretty darn cool considering.

Buy this card you will not be disappointed.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: The specs sum it up. Have had no problems with it. Runs cool and stable. I recommend running the fan at 100%. This card is not noisy at all, compared to my old BFG 8800 GT. Very large card, but expected. Excellent FPS on my favorite games like Company of Heroes and Crysis. Most games will run at max settings other than Crysis.

Cons: It might of been my drive, but the drivers disc didn't work. Isn't really a problem because they're on Nvidia's site for free.

Other Thoughts: Definitely worth the money. Make sure you case will fit the card, and make sure your PSU is up to par with the card.

5 out of 5 eggsGigabyte GTX275 SOC

Pros: Very Nice card. Never gets hotter than 50C even on heavy loads. Well Built and not to big at all as some suggest it is. Front to back is about 10 1/2 in. fits easily in any full sized case.

Cons: NONE!!

Other Thoughts: SLI for this card is a wast as it can play every game I throw at it with 60-.... fps.

5 out of 5 eggssuper awesomeness

Pros: Runs very cool. pre overclocked AND overclockable
i dont think ive ever seen this card get past 58c and it idles 32-34 in my room with a antec 1200 lots and lots of memory play crysis at 720p with everything on high settings

Cons: i was kinda bummed about the hdmi port with my case it blocks it so i can not use it, the end of most hdmi cords are to big to fit in between my case and the hdmi port. :(
so im stuck with dvi to hdmi

Other Thoughts: yes it is big i hate how people say how its a con when they should look it up before they buy it. im going to sli 2 of these its gonna be pretty nice. could have been at least 20 bucks cheaper

5 out of 5 eggsGV-N26SO-896I GTX260 Super OC

Pros: I have the GTX 260 Super OC (GV-N26SO-896I) version of this card. I am reviewing here because Newegg has removed the card from their site shorty after it sold out. Please read reviews about these cards (Gigabyte Super OC Card) online, they are amazing. The parts they pick go through a rigorous testing or binning process. They seem to have done an incredible job with both the gtx 260 and this one (GTX 275). I got the GTX260 for Christmas from my wife. Amazing, runs all games i tried on ultra high (AA tends to test the card but AA normally does). At 1680-1050 Crysis Warhead, Fallout 3, Assassin's Creed and Modern Warefare 1. This card replaced my old EVGA 8800GTS 320mb and WOW what a difference. It is also quieter (something that they work to accomplish with their Super OC series cards) I have BadaBoom software too but haven't tested it with this card yet. I am expecting the same high improvements aswell. Blurays look amazing with this card aswell. My wife bought this on newegg.

Cons: This card is massive. If my old 8800 GTS is 10 1/2 inches then this card is roughly 12 inches. Not really a con though but it was close in my Xion Mid Tower case. Sadly for other buyers this card is made in limited quantities so once they sellout thats it

Other Thoughts: My computer specs are:
Core 2 Duo E8400 @3.0ghz
GIGABYTE Geforce GTX 260 GV-N26SO-896I
6 GB DDR2 800 Crucial Ballistix
ASUS Xonar D2 Sound Card
LITEON Bluray drive
WIN7 Home Premium

5 out of 5 eggsWOW

Pros: Have not been able to fully utilize this card, has more power than ill ever need until I implement my Nvidia 3d setup. Factory OC is really nice, especially since I have no interest in overclocking my graphics card. BUY ONE NOW.

Cons: Avoid buying this unless you are prepared for the fact that it is MASSIVE. I'm not exaggerating, this thing is huge. I had to move my single hard drive to the very bottom drive slot, and this card still just barely fit. I have a M9 Thermaltake mid case.

Other Thoughts: I have not had any heat problems with this card yet, have not been able to push it over 46c. However, my cpu cooler has 120mm fan that blows directly onto the bottom of the card, so that could be helping a bit. Overall, very happy with the purchase as I know that I will not need to upgrade for awhile (if I do, my wife will shoot me)

4 out of 5 eggsExpensive and rare

Pros: 3 year warranty, hand picked components, 3d capable, Extra memory is good for larger monitors.

Cons: It is a bit loud when running full load. Expensive compared to whats out there right now on the ATI product side.

Other Thoughts: It definatly doesn't "overheat", at full load i average 58c in a midtower with an overclocked quad.
Just make sure you have some decent air movement.


If you are looking to run sli in the future I have a funny feeling this card might be vary hard to find down the road and there isn't any other card similar to this one, so u might have some compatibility issues with another card in sli

3 out of 5 eggsGreat GPU - Mediocre Card

Pros: Single card setup, playing all my modern games with all effects turned on at 1920x1200 resoultion and max AA, AF, texture detail, environment detail, etc, etc. Smooth as butter and rock solid stability ... After substantial cooling modification.

Cons: It's loud. Of course it's loud its a higher end video card. BUT it's loud and dosen't cool the card well enough!

I had lots of visual artifacts and game freezes playing COD:MW2. I confirmed this was a heat issue because cooling modifications made the issue go away.

Specifically: The MOSFETs toward the rear of the card get too hot and the GPU starts glitching or crashing.

This IS a card with a stock overclock, but since it is OEM it should work properly out of the box under reasonable conditions. I consider using this in a new system build with quality components and low (19C) ambient temperature to be "reasonable conditions".

Other Thoughts: I removed the stock cooler and installed a liquid cooling block and sitck on ram sinks. I included heat sinks on the MOSFETs at the back of the card.

After this modification the card would crash within minutes of playing a game. I figured somthing was overheating and quadruple checked to make sure I had heatsinks on everything that touched the original cooler.

The interesting part was that the original cooler did not appear to touch the MOSFETs. It looks like the stock cooler just blows lots of air past them, but that they neither touch the aluminum cooler nor have heatsinks on them.

I installed a 120mm fan (800 RPM, ~20 CFM) under the card to blow up at it. This plus the heatsinks on the MOSFETs solved my stability problem and the card is now rock solid and the water cooled core tops out at 41C while gaming.

The stock cooler kept the core at 72C, which is well within the acceptable range for the GPU, but inadaquately cools other critical components on the card.

5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME CARD

Pros: UPGRADED FROM 8800GT SLI SETUP AND NOTICED A HUGE IMPROVEMENT WITH PERFORMANCE. I CAN MAX OUT ARKHAM ASYLUM AND PLAY WITH NO HICCUPS!!!! I STILL USE ONE 8800GT AS A PHYSX CARD.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: WOULD BEEN KIND OF NICE TO GET A GAME WITH THE CARD.
