4 out of 5 eggsPower House

Pros: Runs cool, quiet fan and runs stable. This card comes stock overclocked at low settings. The great thing is that you can over clock this and it can take it. I set the core clock to 700, memory clock to 1200 and it hardly increased the max load temp. But it did give me a 1,000 more 3dmark vantage points, so great GPU and MSI makes the best heatsinks/fan mods out there.

Cons: The bad is the MSI software. It is incosistant, not accurate and does not detect 80% of what it is supposed to. When I installed the hardware monitoring software all it picked up and monitored was the GPU temp. The memory clock, core clock, shader clock, and fan speed were all undetected. So I got EVGA Precision software and it detects all and has many more features than MSI. Also EVGA Precision is amazing to configure, overclock and monitor your card. Higly recommend it.

Other Thoughts: This card is not any longer that the other good gaming card. I replaced my MSI Nvidia 9600GT and the 260GTX was a half an inch longer. So if you have a small case and have cables/drives across from your PCI-E slot you may need to make room and manage your cables better. The Nvidia 275GTX is not worth the extra money this card (V4) is faster!

4 out of 5 eggsFaster than a 4870 and better Linux support

Pros: Performs as well or better than the ATI 4870 it replaced. The benchmarks at TomsHardware seam accurate. The NVIDIA Linux drivers are much more reliable than the ATI drivers which was my primary motivation in switching back to NVIDIA. I can play Left4Dead and Crysis at maximum settings on a 1680x1050 LCD.

Cons: The card is very large. I have a 3U server case. Length isn't a problem but the aux power connectors are on the top of the card instead of the end, so there is absolutely no room to plug in the power cables and close my case. I will have to solder new connectors onto the card.

Other Thoughts: AMD Phenom 9950, 8GB RAM, ASUS M3A32-MVP AMD 790FX Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggsawesome card

Pros: Fit in my case just fine. Only had to move the HD to another slot. Plays all my games without a hitch. No problems with drivers running under vista.

Cons: Only that I could not get two for the price of one.

5 out of 5 eggsNice looking ram

Pros: Like the looks, and that it came with heat spreaders. Was cheaper then DDR2 for same clock speed.

Cons: Wish 4g chips was not so expencive. (my mother board only has 2 slots)

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Playes all my games like Fallout 3 and Call of Duty World at War. Price was just in my budget.

Cons: Very big card, just fit with no room to spare. (expected for a Micro ATX case)

Other Thoughts: Running a Q9550 at 3.05GHz, and 4G DDR3.

5 out of 5 eggsI like it

Pros: I like the cost, performance ratio. I took the "over clock" up a notch with EVGA precision tool to 700 core, 1512 shader clock (linked), and memory to 2300mhz. On COD5, supplied o/c was 49-92 fps, with the over- overclock fps is a stable 89-92 fps with a small increase in heat @ 79c when its hot out, 55-60c when its not(no a/c & i live in a warmer climent area). Nvidia's spec. for this card's max. temp 105c so i'm not worried, besides, cpu temp. stays right @ 53c.

Cons: For some reason Nvidia's latest drivers for Windows Vista/Win 7 (186.18 & 190.38) force me to use the display adapter to tone down the "too intense" colors. Rolled the drivers to version 178.24 and everything looks and works great! Maybe its a Vista 64bit thing, because its an upgrade instead of a clean full install. Can't dock an egg fot that.

Other Thoughts: One heck of an upgrade from the 9600GT (great little card though). Fit just fine in my mid-tower case, and something of a pleasant suprise is that with 8 gigs of system memory, it shares memory to the video adapter; card memory 896mbs+2046mbs shared=2942 total availible graphics memory. Also using a 500w Antec psu and total draw is right around 246w and no strain what-so-ever. Thanks MSI. I was leary because of other reviews but went for it anyway. Glad I did. Thanks NewEgg for prompt processing & delivery!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat GTX260 for Less

Pros: -Large Factory OverClock (655Mhz).
-Smaller Cooling Fan solution than older OCv2 version (which I also have).
-Single GPU performance @ 1920x1080 is rock solid coupled with my Q6600 @ 3.2Ghz.
-Painless SLI setup with my OCv2 & OCv4 versions of this card.
-Runs cooler, and pushes more air out of itself than the older OCv2 version of this card that I also bought months ago.

Cons: -With ATI releasing their 5800 series cards, this card is now considered "aged" if you will.

-MSI's utilities don't function. (Always use nVidia's latest driver too)

Other Thoughts: I ordered this card to setup SLI with my older OCv2 version of this card. Performance is great. I'm glad that the OCv4 has a smaller cooling solution, and therefore fits into my case a little easier (clip secures card instead of screw). Works flawlessly with my OCv2. GPU-Z shows them to be identical other than the BIOS version. Minor physical differences on the PCB itself, so obviously they made some changes.

If you want pretty, spend more on another brand of GPU. If you don't care what the card looks like, MSI performs just as well and costs less (plus has a nice OC on them). Never had a problem with any MSI GPU I've ever purchased.

I have determined though that my Q6600 @ 3.2Ghz is a limiting factor on my GTX 260 SLI setup.

Games I use with:
Far Cry 2 (1920x1080 @ all Ultra High Avg 48FPS SLI)
Age of Conan (won't do SLI)
Crysis
GTA IV
COD4 / COD: WAW
Fallout 3
The Sims 3

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent overclocking

Pros: I haven't overclocked a video card yet from the bios but I overclocked this video card from ntune and maxed out the core bus to 1310mhz and the memory bus to 1680mhz staying cool at 45*c and it seemed like it could go much further.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Graphics

Pros: I haven't yet been able to completely load two of these down in SLI mode yet. The closest I can come is Fallout 3 with every setting at maximum. Even the poorly programmed GTA 4 runs smoothly, graphics wise. I'm not certain what the other folks here expect for temps, but my cards are leveling at 65-70'C. Toasty? Perhaps, but I don't think so, because they do not get any hotter than this, and I can load them down all day long. I highly recommend these cards to someone not keen on spending more than $200 on a graphics adapter.

Cons: Big doesn't begin to describe these things. Physically big and heavy. They almost remind me of ye olde ISA super cards from days past. Make sure you are not using an exclusively mATX case. Full ATX case at least.

Other Thoughts: I guess I really don't understand some of the cons here. Let me be explicitly clear: If you overclock this (or any) card and it overheats or burns up, the problem is YOU, not the hardware. The hardware comes preset to it's operating specs. This video cards works beautifully in it's factory operating conditions, and should be judged accordingly.

Yes, MSI has lousy customer service, but this is old news, it's the chance you take with any manufacturer.

Bottom line, this card is worth the money. It's relatively inexpensive and it really produces good things. I highly recommend this.
