2 out of 5 eggsAnd down she goes

Pros: This card served well during its life time, for the price I could have done better then 1GB.

Cons: The problem with Nivida is lack of support for there products, many people know a recent update failed many of these cards and most likely I will never purchase NVIDIA again, color me disappointed.

Other Thoughts: If you have the nerve to charge your customers over $400 for a 1GB graphics card, please design it to work for more then a couple of years. I also learned that you mine as well buy the cheapest stuff you can find IE not Nvidia products and you will be more then happy because when a card fails after 4 years you would of gotten your moneys worth. With Nvidia you just get what you deserve.

5 out of 5 eggsAll it's cracked up to be and more!

Pros: As others have said, mine came OC'd despite what it is advertised at, it is for sure over factory spec.
I had a hard time getting some of my games to drop below 60 FPS on a 60 hz monitor.

Cons: Didn't come with a case sticker! What the heck is that? Lucky for me I have one from my old MSI board which lasted forever.

Other Thoughts: If you can't visualize how long this card is try putting a ruler in your case to see if it will fit because it is every bit as large as people say. If your case isn't 20 inches long then you're out of luck on this card without some hard work.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: See other thoughts

Cons: Big, I had to mod my hard drive bay to allow the card to use the space.

Other Thoughts: I bought the card prior to my new board which is on the way, im only running a p4 single core ATM so I'm excited to see how it runs on my new board.

5 out of 5 eggsStill the best single video card solution

Pros: Still the fastest true single video card solution. No scaling or driver issues. Runs almost every game at 1920x1200 maxed out with 4xAA and 16xAF. I can't even communicate how much I love this card. It is just that amazing.

Cons: It likes a lot of processing power? I have an E8600 at 4.5ghz and it still wants more. I guess this isn't really a con though because it doesn't need that fast of a processor, it just runs faster up until just under 5ghz.

Other Thoughts: This card is slower than a 4870 X2 or any other high end multiple video card solution in most games. But the GTX 280 does not have scaling or driver issues. I switched to this card from an SLI 8800GT OC setup and all my driver and scaling issues went away. I will never use a multiple video card solution again unless I see some serious driver improvements. When a game does not have good driver support for multiple video cards, a single slower card of the setup simply cannot handle high resolutions. Switching to this card also eliminated all stuttering and hitching that occurs when running a multiple video card setup.

3 out of 5 eggsMixed Feelings

Pros: Fast & Powerful.
Comes with a bunch of adapters for things such as S-Video,

Cons: The cards actual box came banged up, but the box it was shipped in was fine. Edges frayed, a few scratches on it, etc. Also came with some smudges on the card leading me to believe that someone had handled the card previously and maybe it was a return of some sort.

My main gripe is that I just can't get the card to show a picture when it first boots up. It'll show the Vista loading screen, but as soon as it reaches the screen where I have to enter my password, the picture disappears. To get it back I have to unplug my DVI monitor and then plug it back in... and I have to do this every time I turn on my computer. This doesn't happen when I booted into safe mode however, nor did it happen when I was using my TV as a monitor via the S-Video port, leading me to believe that it's either a driver issue or a defective card. I even reinstalled windows, only to find out the problem still persists. Pretty sure it's not my monitor as it worked fine on my on my other computer.

Other Thoughts: If it works right, it's a great card. I'm having some troubles though. Also, the bundled software isn't the greatest, but I'm not gonna knock 'em for throwing it in.

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work

Pros: None

Cons: Simply doesn't work. Tested on 2 systems with a proper power supply. RMA system works well and I receive a new one and it's exactly the same problem. Tested on a system that has originally a PNY GTX 280 512MB and replace with the MSI N280GTX-T2: it doesn't work either.
I need to find a way to return and get a credit. Waist of time...

1 out of 5 eggsOverClocked is Right

Pros: Can't think of any....

Cons: Got this card for a friend but should have known better. When companies start selling products pre-overclocked you should know better than to waste your money. Card worked ok for a few days then randomly crashed. MSI Tech Support Zero Help....

Other Thoughts: MSI doesn't honer their rebates ether so don't waste your time with that...

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: fast and stable thusfar. Not as loud as I expected based on reviews. Runs everything (incl. Crysis) at max with no problems.

Cons: Not thrilled with MSI software.

Other Thoughts: Expect and prepare for this card to be large. I have an Antec p182 case and I took the HD cage out and have a 120mm fan blowing over the card. Perfect setup. Initially had some choppy gaming and took my case door off and found that Netcard was blocking airflow. I was overheating the card! I Moved netcard and havent had trouble since. Nice and smooth under a full load.

Asus Crosshair, AMD 6000+, 4gig DDR2 800mhz, 650w Coolermaster with pin adapter, Vista 32bit, 22inch Samsung ToC monitor.
