4 out of 5 eggsGiggity

Pros: Ridiculously flawless performance out of the box, not to mention the overclocking potential here. Couldn't believe how quiet this beast operates. The sli setup should be a cinch if you know what you're doing. Oh and it's pretty :)

Cons: Card is huge. It's not really a con for me, but if you don't have a full size atx case this will NOT fit. Even with a full atx cable management and airflow inside the tower will be greatly affected by the amount of space this thing displaces. Totally worth it though.

Other Thoughts: A must have for hard core gamers or anyone using intensive development apps like adobe cs4 and other notorious memory hogs. Whatever you use it for it will exceed expectations. Great buy.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Card, Great Cooler, Great Performance!

Pros: -This thing is built SOLID, very good manufacturing. top notch components allow for stability and great overclocking potential.

-Great cooler, and the fan on default is at 40%, very quiet i cant hear it over my loud case fans.

-Great performance, Ive maxed every single game i wanted to play. Call of Duty. Dragon Age, Dawn Of War 2, Batman, Prototype, Borderlands all play on max. Crysis runs smooth as butter on Gamer settings, with textures set to enthusiast on Dx10 @ 55 FPS.

-Can do PHYSX and CUDA apps, like Folding @ Home to help with cancer.

Cons: -Fan on default is at 40%, it is loud at about 70%+, but it cools just fine at 40%, so not really a con.

Core i7 860 @ 2.8Ghz
4096MB Ram
500GB Western Digital Blue HDD
MSI GTX 275 Lightning

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card

Pros: This card is awesome, it idles at 39C while my old 8800 would idle at almost 70C (but I think it was on the way out). This card will not be your bottleneck for gaming. There is no game I've played yet that this card has trouble with. I would definitely recommend this card to anyone looking for a mid-cost high powered video card.

Cons: It's pretty big, but it was actually the same exact size as my old 8800 GTX.

5 out of 5 eggsBuy this over the 285's

Pros: This card out performs any card in this price range. Runs very cool and very quiet. Like others have stated, this can run most games maxed. I love the fact it has an hdmi out on it as well instead of just DVI's or VGA's. This card is built like a tank as well. No cheap plastic here.

Cons: Nothing comes to mind. I havent had a single negative issue with this card yet.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you have a big mid tower or full tower. This card is about 1/2" longer than my old 8800GTS. I had to shift the harddrives down a bay. I have this in a Raidmax Smilidon mid tower, so it can fit in a mid, just make sure its a big mid. Also it takes 2 PCI-E power connectors so make sure your PS will work with it (think its stated 600w min)

5 out of 5 eggsBEST CARD EVER PERIOD

Pros: I did ton's of research before buying this card. And the number prove it all, this is one of the best cards you can get for the money. In test it even showed that it preformed better then many 600 dollar cards. It's quiet and keeps my computer nice and cool, and has low power consumption.

Plays all my games on MAX settings, including:
-Company of heroes
-Flashpoint 2 Dragon Rising
-Left 4 Dead
-Call of Duty Series
-Crysis
-Etc

Cons: It's quite big.

Other Thoughts: I don't understand how this card did not get many more buyers and reviews. My only assumption was that it was because it's msi and not one of the main brands.

You should definitely buy this card and take my word for it.
